Finals Rescheduling

Storrs Campus Fall 2017 Finals Rescheduling

Effective October 2, 2017, students may receive permission to reschedule if they have finals which are “bunched” or if a student has an “extenuating circumstance”.

If approval is granted, it is expected that students will inform instructors of their conflict(s) prior to the final.

To access the finals schedule go to the Office of the Registrar. On October 2, 2017, students registered in courses at the Storrs campus will be able to see their final exam schedule in the Student Admin. To view final exams for Storrs courses, after logging in, please navigate to Exam Schedule by clicking Main Menu, Self Service, and then Student Center. Under Academics, from the other academic… drop-down menu, select Final Exam Schedule to view your finals schedule. Should you have questions, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 486-3331 or email registrar@uconn.edu.

BUNCHED FINALS

Students who have “bunched finals” should go to the iCenter at the entrance to Wilbur Cross between October 2nd and November 17th. Students with bunched finals, who do not request permission by November 17th will not be granted permission to reschedule their exams.

Please note: for students with three exams in one day, the exam that will be rescheduled is the middle exam.

  • 2 finals scheduled at the same time

EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES

Students with extenuating circumstances are encouraged to visit the Dean of Students Office to speak to a staff member as soon as possible. Staff may allow students to reschedule a final due to an unavoidable circumstance, such as religious observances, previously scheduled medical procedures/appointments, or other ceremonies in which you are directly involved in the event. Supporting documentation will be required.

Finals are not rescheduled for personal errors, like oversleeping or misreading the finals schedule. Finals are generally not rescheduled due to voluntary travel conflicts. Students (and parents) are encouraged to check the finals schedule before making travel plans.

Students who have prior knowledge of a conflict (bunched finals, religious event/obligation, attendance to a funeral, court date, previously scheduled medical appointment, or other qualifying event) must come to Dean of Students Office prior to November 17, 2017. Students who do not come by November 17, 2017 for reasons that were known or should have been known prior to this deadline will NOT be granted permission to reschedule their final(s).

 

IMMEDIATE ILLNESS

Students with an immediate illness must be seen by Student Health Services for verification of illness. Student Health Services will provide information to Dean of Students Office who will then inform the instructor of permission to reschedule the final. Students who are ill and were seen by Student Health Services do not need to also visit the Dean of Students Office.

 

UNIVERSITY EMERGENCY/CLOSINGS

In cases of University closings (emergency or severe weather conditions), finals may be rescheduled from the original date/time. The Office of the Registrar will determine the makeup finals schedule in these instances. Please see the Office of the Registrar website for the most up to date information available.

 

REGIONAL CAMPUSES

Students enrolled in regional campus courses must refer to the final exam schedule at the specific regional campus. Regional campuses will NOT have their final exam schedule available on Student Admin.
