Final examinations at the end of each term are an integral part
of the academic program at Rose-Hulman. Certain courses may be more
equitably tested by problem sets, project reports, term papers,
etc., and are treated accordingly as the instructor chooses.
Scheduling of final examinations is accomplished by the
Registrar's Office. All changes in the schedule, including times
and rooms, must be reported to and approved by that Office. See Current Exam
No final examinations may be scheduled by anyone at any time
prior to the regularly scheduled starting time for final
examinations as published. Exceptions to this rule may be made only
by vote of the Faculty. This rule does not preclude examinations
being given during regularly scheduled class time. The Faculty has
agreed to minimize the use of tests, quizzes, and examinations
during the last week of regularly scheduled classes in each term,
especially in classes which have final examinations.
A schedule of final examinations is made available each term. A
student who is scheduled to take two final examinations at the same
time or is scheduled for more than two final examinations on the
same day should immediately consult with the instructors involved
In order to facilitate the necessary administrative work for
seniors graduating at the end of the spring term, no examinations
will be scheduled for them after the last day of classes. The
instructor of a spring term class which contains graduating seniors
should arrange the testing of the seniors commensurate with the
deadline for submission of grades for graduating seniors.

to Rules & Procedures.
