Exam Schedule for Fall 2017

Student Information

Undergraduate students having three final examinations that begin and end within a 24-hour time period (any contiguous combination of the 9 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7 p.m. exam times) or two final examinations during the same exam period may petition to have one exam changed to another date/time. If one of the exams under consideration is a block exam, the block exam may not be the exam that is changed.

Print and complete the Petition to Change Final Examination. Deliver the form to the Office of the University Registrar no later than Friday, November 17, 2017 for Fall 2017 exams. The Office of the University Registrar will determine if you are eligible to have an exam changed and confirm that exams are being given in each of the courses that you have listed. Instructors will be contacted in the priority order that you have established to request the rescheduling of the exam. The Office of the University Registrar will contact you via email when an instructor has responded positively to the request. After receiving that email from the Office of the University Registrar, you will be responsible for contacting the instructor to finalize the arrangements for rescheduling the exam.

NOTE: There is no requirement for any instructor to reschedule an exam. Submission of a "Petition to Change a Final Exam Schedule" does not guarantee that an exam will be changed.

Any student wishing to petition for relief from unauthorized changes in his/her examination schedule should email registrar@duke.edu or contact the Office of the University Registrar, 1121 W. Main Street, Suite 1200, Durham, NC, 27701. Questions about the process can be directed to 919-684-2813.

Reading days are: Graduate students - December 2-12; Undergraduate students - December 9-12.

Faculty Information

In courses in which final examinations are not scheduled, an exam that substitutes for a final examination may not be given in the last week of classes. Hourly tests may be given in the last week of classes, whether or not a final examination is administered during the exam period. Examinations in precepts should be given during the last class meeting. Take Home examinations are due at the exam time designated for the day and period at which the class regularly meets. Examinations in classes which meet one day per week are scheduled according to the schedule below, according to the meeting day and start time of the one day per week class. Examinations in classes which meet two or more periods in one day, or in combination sequence (e.g. Mon/Wed, Mon/Fri, Tues/Thurs), are scheduled according to the first lecture period. No activities can be scheduled during official reading periods.

NO CHANGE IS TO BE MADE IN THE EXAMINATION SCHEDULE WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE UNIVERSITY SCHEDULE COMMITTEE.

All final grades for graduating students must be submitted within 24 hours of the final exam. All other final grades are due within 48 hours of the final exam. For more information on the reporting of grades please refer to section 6 of the Faculty Handbook.

Exam Schedule by Class Start Time

Unless otherwise arranged, exams are scheduled in the regularly scheduled classrooms where courses have been meeting throughout the term. Instructors will notify students should the exam be offered in alternative meeting locations.
