Final Exams, 3 in 24 hours
Undergraduate students having three final examinations that begin and end within a 24-hour time period (any contiguous combination of the 9AM, 2PM, and 7PM exam times) or two final examinations during the same exam period may petition to have one exam changed to another date/time. If one of the exams under consideration is a block exam, the block exam may not be the exam that is changed.
- Print and complete the Petition to Change Final Examination Schedule
- Deliver the form to the Office of the University Registrar
The Office of the University Registrar will determine if you are eligible to have an exam changed and confirm that exams are being given in each of the courses that you have listed. Instructors will be contacted in the priority order that you have established to request the rescheduling of the exam. The Office of the University Registrar will contact you via email when an instructor has responded positively to the request. After receiving that email from the Office of the University Registrar, you will be responsible for contacting the instructor to finalize the arrangements for rescheduling the exam.
NOTE: There is no requirement for any instructor to reschedule an exam. Submission of a "Petition to Change a Final Exam Schedule" does not guarantee that an exam will be changed.
Any student wishing to petition for relief from unauthorized changes in his/her examination schedule should contact the Registrar's Office, 1121 W. Main Street, Suite 1200, Bevan Building, (919) 684-2813.
Note: The official schedule of final semester examinations for Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, the Pratt School of Engineering, and the Graduate School is prepared and distributed by the University Schedule Committee. No changes may be made to the examination schedule without the committee's approval. Generally, final examinations are scheduled according to the day and hour at which the course meets during the semester.
