Final Exam Schedule

All courses have a scheduled exam time determined by the day and start time of the course. The listings below show the standard class meeting time exam assignments for undergraduate courses. In general, common exams are held at 4:00 p.m. If a course does not fit exactly into a module, it assumes the module corresponding to the closest class meeting time. For example, a class meeting TTH 11 is assigned module 10 (TTH 10:30*). In situations where the non-standard time falls halfway between two modules, use the module for the later time. For example, a class meeting MWF 9:30 is assigned module 03 (MWF 10).

In all cases, students should check their final exam schedule on www.bc.edu/myservices as the end of the semester approaches to confirm the time and room assignments for each of their exams. Faculty should check their web grading sheets posted in www.bc.edu/myservices for the most up-to-date information regarding the meeting day, time, and room assignment for their final exams.

Exam information will also be available on U-View through UIS.

An undergraduate course that allows graduate student registrations and that meets once a week during the standard class meeting times (8:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.) assumes the standard undergraduate module corresponding to the closest class meeting time. For example, a Monday 10–11:50 a.m. course would correspond with the M W F 10 class time, which is scheduled for exam module 03 (see Final Exam Schedule listed above).

The final exam for a graduate course that meets once a week during standard class meeting times would be on the first class day and time during the week of final exams. As an example, a graduate course that meets once a week on Monday from 10–11:50 a.m. would have its final exam on Monday of exam week at class time.

No exams should be scheduled during the Study Days designated on the Academic Calendar.

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 happen 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.–3:00 p.m.) should provide a make-up exam. In addition, 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.

If there is a storm 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 inclement 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, announcements will be made on WBZ, WRKO, and WBMX, and on the Boston College INFO line (617-552-4636). For graduate and professional students, announcements concerning final exams will be made on the same radio stations and on 617-552-INFO. Students are responsible for attending final exams at the scheduled times. In addition, students should consider possible exam rescheduling when making travel plans at the end of the semester.
