Final examinations are typically conducted in or around the third week of December and in or around the fourth week of April. Final exam schedules can be found here and are available in the Registrar’s Office by the second week of each new semester. Students are encouraged to consult the schedule and notify the Registrar’s Office immediately of any conflicts with other examinations. Students must remain available until all examination/test obligations have been fulfilled.

Exam Conflicts

Students are encouraged to read the exam schedule early in the semester to determine if there are conflicts (more than one examination at the same time). If a student discovers a conflict, they will advise the Registrar’s Office immediately. When conflicts have been determined by the Registrar’s Office, rescheduling accommodations will be made in consultation with the student and the professor. If a student has three consecutive exams (see details below), application can be made to the Registrar’s Office for an exam accommodation. Applications must be received at least two weeks prior to the start of the exam period.  Students with final exam accommodations in the fall semester will write their final exam in the second week of the winter semester. Students with final exam accommodations in the winter semester will write their final exam in the second week of May. Please note these Providence specific examples of three consecutive exams: Monday morning, Monday mid-day and Monday afternoon, or Monday mid-day, Monday afternoon and Monday evening. These are not examples of three consecutive exams: Monday morning, Monday mid-day and Monday evening, or Monday afternoon, Monday evening, and Tuesday morning. There is no fee for exam accommodation.

Missing a Final Exam

Students missing a final examination for compassionate or medical reasons may be granted an exam accommodation by making application to the Registrar’s Office and not to the professor. As noted above, students with final exam accommodations in the fall semester will write their final exam in the second week of the winter semester. Students with final exam accommodations in the winter semester will write their final exam in the second week of May.

To make an arrangement for a final exam accommodation due to a missed final exam, students will apply in writing to the Registrar’s Office preferably two weeks in advance and no later than five working days beyond the scheduled final exam date. In order to secure a final exam accommodation for compassionate or medical reasons, students will attach written proof (such as a medical certificate) supporting the reason for the missed examination. The dates of the illness/affliction must correspond to the dates of the examination. The Registrar and the Associate Dean for Student Affairs will consider the application for accommodation. The committee reserves the right to approve or deny requests as it sees fit. All decisions are final.

Missing a Mid-Term Exam

Students missing mid-term examinations for compassionate or medical reasons, will report to the professor as soon as possible and provide written proof supporting the absence from the test or mid-term examination. Missing an examination is serious. Professors are free to address the missed mid-term with any number of assignments as they see fit.

Travel

Travel plans are not an acceptable reason to miss examinations. Exam accommodations are not provided to facilitate travel and all applications citing travel as the extenuating circumstance will be denied.
