Final exam scheduling process for spring 2016 (1163)

The Office of Classroom Management schedules final exams through an automated process in Astra Schedule for all classes that meet in general purpose classrooms. Once the majority of exams are scheduled, OCM manually places the final exams that have room conflicts and special requests for exams submitted through the ASR forms as described below.
Read through the following scenarios to determine the requirements for scheduling your department’s final exams:
  1. If a class will hold its final exam as indicated on the Spring 2016 final exam schedule in its regular general purpose classroom, there is no need for you to contact us. Your final exam will be scheduled automatically.
  2. If a class requires a special room assignment to hold the final exam, fill out adnsubmit ASR form 123 by March 4.
  3. If a class will not hold its final exam as indicated on the Spring 2016 final exam schedule, let us know ASAP. This includes:
    • Not holding an in-person exam during finals week, May 9 – May 14, 2016 - Email ocmsched@umn.edu with the class details (designator/section number) by February 19. 
    • Requesting an extended exam time frame - Fill out and submit ASR form 163by March 4
    • Meeting on a different date or time during finals week - Fill out and submit ASR form 163 by March 4

Please note: If your class is not scheduled through the last week of the semester, your final exam will NOT be scheduled unless you submit a request for a classroom.
