Exam Information

This information is provided by the Registrar about scheduling exams: https://www.brandeis.edu/registrar/faculty/new-faculty.html:  These are not obligatory, so we survey instructors at the start of the term to determine which courses require a final exam during Finals Week. We process the results to determine the date and time for all final exams. (We assign exam slots to reduce the conflicts for students, which otherwise necessitate make-up exams.) If you are scheduled for an exam during Finals Week, then you must allow the full 3 hours for the students to complete the exam – regardless of whether you design the exam to be shorter. Please note that NO obligatory activities may be scheduled for the Study Days that precede Finals Week. Students may not take a final exam early. We try to post the final exam schedule as early as we possibly can in the term, so that students and instructors can make travel plans, so please respond to our surveys promptly.
