Final Exam Schedule
Boston College has different schedules for Undergraduate and Graduate courses as follows:
Undergraduate Course Exams
Undergraduate Courses Exams either have a standard exam or a common exam.
Standard exams: Undergraduate classes that meet in time slots starting between 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
NOTE: some undergraduate courses with multiple sections may have a Common Exam; please review the Common Exam tab for those courses to which this type of exam applies.
In situations where the class meeting time falls halfway between two time slots, use the corresponding exam time slot for the later time slot. For example, a class meeting MW starting at 8:30 should use the MWF 9 meeting time slot to determine the corresponding exam time.
Common Exams: some undergraduate courses with multiple class sections; these are grouped together to provide ease in the administration of the exams. Review the Common Exam tab for those courses to which this type of exam applies.
Graduate Course Exams
Graduate Courses Exams: meets on the same day of the week on which the class meets during the semester and follows this grid on the Graduate Courses Exams tab.
Students should check their final exam schedule at bc.edu/myservices as the end of the semester approaches to confirm the time and room assignments for each of their exams.
Instructors should check their final exam schedule at bc.edu/myservices as the end of the semester approaches to confirm the time and room assignments for each of their exams. If your exam day/time/location does not appear on your list of exams in your Portal as expected, notify your Department Administrator immediately so it may be scheduled.
NOTE: exams usually occur in the classroom in which the course is taught, but there may be exceptions. Please check the exam room assignment as your exam approaches.

Multiple Exam Policy
Students are expected to take no more than two final exams in any one day. If a student has three exams scheduled in one day and one of these is a common exam, it is the responsibility of the instructor holding the common exam to give a make-up exam.
If a student has three regularly scheduled exams (this can occur if the student is taking a course that meets at 4:00 p.m. or later), the instructor teaching the course outside of the standard time blocks (8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.) should provide a make-up exam.
If a student has two exams scheduled at the same time, the instructor teaching the course that meets later in the week during the semester should provide a make-up exam (for example, if a student is enrolled in a course that meets on Mondays from 4:30–6:50, and is additionally enrolled in a course that meets on Wednesdays from 4:30–6:50, the instructor of the Wednesday course should provide the make-up exam).
Note: a student may elect to take all three exams as scheduled; it is up to the student to inquire with their instructors regarding the rescheduling of their exams.
If a student has a conflict between a common exam and a regularly scheduled late afternoon or evening course exam, the responsibility for a make-up lies with the instructor offering the common exam.
For clarification on these policies, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inclement Weather Policy
If there is inclement weather during the examination period, there is the expectation that exams will be held as scheduled. In the very rare instance that the exam schedule is delayed or postponed due to severe weather or other emergency situations, the first available of the following days will be used: the Sunday during the exam week, the afternoon of the last exam day, and the day after the last exam day. If rescheduling is necessary, you will receive notifications by text and/or email from Boston College, or you may call the Boston College INFO line (888-BOS-COLL) or refer to www.bc.edu/emergency. Students are responsible for attending final exams at the scheduled times. Students should consider possible exam rescheduling when making travel plans at the end of the semester.
