Storrs Campus Fall 2019 Finals Rescheduling
Effective October 1st, 2019, 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.
Students who have “bunched finals” should go to the iCenter at the entrance to Wilbur Cross between October 1st, and November 15th, 2019. Students with bunched finals, who do not request permission by November 15th 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.
Bunched finals include the following:
- 2 finals scheduled at the same time
- 3 finals in one calendar day
- 3 finals in consecutive time blocks spanning parts of two consecutive days
- 4 finals in two consecutive days
3 Exams in One Calendar Day
4 Exams in Two Calendar Days
3 Consecutive Exams (Option 1)
3 Consecutive Exams (Option 2)
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 15th, 2019. Students who do not come by November 15th, 2019 for reasons that were known or should have been known prior to this deadline will NOT be granted permission to reschedule their final(s).
In situations where an illness will prevent a student from taking a final exam, please visit 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.
Students who are ill during final exam week and seek treatment from an off campus medical provider will need to work with the Dean of Students Office to request permission to reschedule an exam. Documentation from the off campus provider verifying the date of illness, without medical details should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 860-486-1792.
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.
Students enrolled in regional campus courses must refer to the final exam schedule available in their Student Admin.
