Fall 2017 final exam deadlines

In a response from schedulers asking to be able to confirm final exam room locations earlier in the semester, OCM has moved forward the final exam production cycle beginning with fall 2017. The Final Exam Change Request form is due on Tuesday, October 3.

After all common final exams are scheduled, change requests are processed in the order in which they are received. The earlier you submit your Final Exam Change Request form, the greater likelihood you will get the instructor's preferred classroom. You will notice some small changes to the change request form itself, in particular for those utilizing common exams. Please let us know if you have any questions.

For classes not holding an in-person exam during finals week, notify us by emailing ocmsched@umn.edu by Tuesday, October 3. Please use the subject line “Fall 2017 Final Exam” and include the subject designator and class section number(s) in the email text. In particular, it is helpful to know when large, lecture classes will not be using their classroom during exam week to fulfill special requests for other final exams requiring large classrooms.

All event requests made through Astra Schedule for finals week are held in our queue until all final exams are scheduled. Astra Schedule event requests should be used to schedule review sessions, but should not be used to secure classrooms for final exams. If you are unsure how to submit your request for an exam room, email ocmsched@umn.edu.
Note: An edit has been made on 9/20/17 to change the day Wednesday to Tuesday, October 3. Apologies for any confusion.
