FINAL EXAM RESCHEDULE PROCEDURES have been adopted to protect the rights of all students and to assure everyone an equal opportunity to perform well on exams.
The ONLY circumstances that justify an automatic reschedule for a final exam are:
Two exams on the same day; or
Exams on each of four consecutive days (without a day in between, including weekends). Please note - 3 exams in a row does not constitute a hardship and approval is at the discretion of the Associate Dean for Students, Academic Affairs & Administration. These requests are rarely granted and would require very compelling circumstances.
ALL other requests for rescheduling will be granted only if compelling circumstances exist and rescheduling is practicable with minimal administrative disruption. Hardship does not include the desire for an earlier end to exams; less expensive travel; attendance at family/friend events such as reunions, vacations, or weddings; or similar personal concerns. Rather, hardship must be of a compelling nature.
To request a reschedule for Spring 2019 quizzes or exams:
For final exams (April 29 – May 10), you must complete and submit the request form by Monday, April 1, 2019. The Assistant Registrar - Law (ARL) will review requests that qualify for automatic approval and follow up with the student beginning Tuesday, April 2, 2019. Requests that require review by the Associate Dean for Students, Academic Affairs & Administration (ADSAAA) will be forwarded as received.
To request a reschedule for quizzes and/or midterms this semester, your request form must be submitted as far in advance as possible. All requests for rescheduled quizzes or midterms will be reviewed by the ADSAAA.
Those requests that do not qualify for automatic approval, will be reviewed with the Associate Dean for Students, Academic Affairs, & Administration.
Exams for which a reschedule is granted shall be given on an exam make-up day unless, in the discretion of the assistant registrar or associate dean, extraordinary circumstances are present. Students will be contacted via email as to whether the request has been granted and the exam has been rescheduled.
Students who need letters of standing when applying to transfer to another law school, jobs, etc, need to submit the form to the Assistant Registrar-Law.
Normal processing for these letters is approximately three business days.
To prevent delays, please be sure and sign your request and include all the pertinent information (name and address of the program and/or law school, standing and/or GPA request, and student ID number, etc.).
