Common Final Exams

Common final exams are typically held by large lecture classes so that they are able to have all students enrolled in the course, regardless of meeting times for specific sections, complete the final exam at the same time.  Your instructor should inform you if your class has a common final exam, and if so, where and when it will be held.  Common final exam times and locations are also listed below for your convenience.

Final Exam Conflicts

Policy on Daily Student Exam Load Faculty Senate policy states that students should not be required to take more than two final exams in one calendar day, and where conflicts arise, faculty should work with students to make necessary arrangements to avoid the conflict. It is recommended that alternate arrangements be made for the student’s second scheduled examination of the day. UMBC’s practice is to refrain from scheduling final exams on Saturday or Sunday, except in the event of a weather-related or other closing of the campus during the regular final exam period, in which case some exams may need to be rescheduled to a weekend day as part of a contingency plan.
