Purpose: To address taking a final exam at a time or date other than the scheduled time or date.
Any student who wishes to take a final examination at a time or date other than the scheduled time and date prescribed on the CSU Final Exam Schedule must obtain the permission of the instructor involved and the dean of the appropriate college or school unless the student has more than three exams in a calendar day (see below).
The process for rescheduling a Final Exam due to extenuating circumstances is:
The student obtains the “PERMISSION TO RESCHEDULE FINAL EXAM” form from the departmental administrative assistant. The form may also be found through the following link:
The student takes the completed form along with a detailed description of the extenuating circumstances to the instructor of the course. If the instructor agrees to the change, then an alternative time for the exam will be arranged. The exam should be scheduled during a regularly scheduled finals slot on a time and date which is convenient to both student and instructor.
* Instructor returns form to office of the appropriate Dean after turning in final grade to registrar. Dean will notify the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs to authorize payment to instructor by Business Office.
The process for rescheduling a Final Exam due to having more than three exams in one calendar day is:
By action of the Dean’s Council February 2014. Revised by Dean’s Council June 2016.
