There are some special circumstances that grant students the ability to request permission to reschedule finals. Learn more on this page.
Examples of Bunched Finals:
3 Exams in One Calendar Day
4 Exams in Two Calendar Days
3 Consecutive Exams (Option 1)
3 Consecutive Exams (Option 2)
Final Exam Rescheduling (Non-Bunched Finals):
Students with extenuating circumstances that conflict with their scheduled final exams are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students Office to speak to a staff member as soon as possible. Students who demonstrate unavoidable circumstances may be approved to reschedule one or more of their final exams. Supporting documentation is required and requests cannot be reviewed fully until it is submitted.
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 & Wellness 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. Request permission by contacting the office at firstname.lastname@example.org and a staff member will follow up with the student directly. Supporting documentation will be required and must verify the date(s) of illness, without medical details. Documentation may be emailed or faxed to 860-486-1972.
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.
Students enrolled in regional campus courses must refer to the final exam schedule available in their Student Admin. Students needing to reschedule an exam on a Regional campus should contact the Student Services staff at that campus to request approval .
