Uniform exams

Uniform exams, also known as departmental exams, occur when an academic unit administers a single test to students in multiple classes at the same time.

Since at least some of the students’ default exam periods will be changed as a result of the uniform exam, a make-up exam must be scheduled to accommodate any students with scheduling conflicts. Also, uniform exams and their required make-ups may only be conducted during specific exam periods in order to further minimize conflicts in the students’ schedules as well as to help ensure room availability. This page contains a table indicating which exam periods are approved for uniform and make-up exams for each semester.

Departments will indicate their preferences for exam time, make-up time, and room assignment via the online final exam request system. Due to demand from multiple units across campus, especially in the earlier exam periods, we cannot ensure that each exam will be scheduled at the requested time or in the requested room until the exams are actually scheduled. Therefore it is best for the department to indicate a second-choice exam time with their request. We will notify the department if they do not get their first-choice time.

Academic units are responsible for ensuring that their exam requests do not conflict with their own or another department’s exams and should coordinate their requests accordingly.
