Final Exam and Activities Scheduling

Last Week of Classes

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.

Reading Days

No non-academic activities (except "study breaks") may be scheduled during reading days. Faculty may schedule non-mandatory class review sessions during reading days but no other class related activities may be scheduled during that period.

Exam Week

The official schedule of final semester examinations for Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, the Pratt School of Engineering, and the Graduate School is prepared and distributed by the University Schedule Committee and is identified earlier on this page. No changes may be made to the examination schedule without the committee's approval. Generally, final examinations are scheduled according to the day and hour at which the course meets during the semester.

No non-exam activities, either academic or non-academic, may be scheduled during the official final exam period, except non-mandatory exam review sessions. These sessions can only be scheduled at the following times:

  • Before 8:30 a.m.
  • 12:30 PM - 1:30 p.m.
  • 5:30 PM - 6:30 p.m.
  • After 10:30 p.m.
