Scheduling of Examinations
Department chairs (or deans of faculties, or affiliated registrars where applicable) shall submit to the Office of the Registrar by the first day of classes each year a final and complete request of the courses to be scheduled into the Mid-Year and Spring examination periods (i.e., course, exam length, type of exam, supplies, separate or common).
Requests for special scheduling (e.g., spacing of examinations, specific examination periods, special seating arrangements or room requests, optional examinations, evening requests) must be submitted to and approved by the Dean of the faculty (or Affiliate Registrar where appropriate) and submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the aforementioned deadline. These requests will be honored by the Office of the Registrar where possible given the limited number of constraints which can be accommodated. During all examination periods the Registrar is given authority to schedule three examinations per day.
The scheduling of "take-home" examinations must be approved by the Dean of the faculty. Papers must be submitted to the instructors by the tenth examination day of the examination period. In the case of
Spring/Summer Session examinations, papers must be submitted to the instructors on the examination date established by the Registrar.
Examinations will be of a two, three or four-hour duration. Requests for permission to schedule an examination of a different duration shall be directed to the Dean of the faculty. The Dean shall seek the advice
of the Registrar before approving such requests.
Each first year course (1000-1999) will have one common, compulsory, three-hour final examination, to be scheduled in the examination period, unless the Dean of the faculty, in consultation with the Educational Policy
Committee, exempts the course from any of these requirements.
