Final Exams

Review the official policies on final exams so you know what to expect.

Note: Instructors may also access their final exam schedule from the Instructor Schedule page in AIM.


Exam Preparation Days and the Final Examination Period are to be protected for their intended purposes. No other activities or events will be scheduled on campus. Any review sessions during this time must be voluntary.

Scheduled final examinations are to be administered according to the Final Examination Schedule as to date and time. (Any exception to this policy must be authorized by the chair and dean.) Finals are not to be given or taken early. Second-term class examinations will be given at the time shown in the schedule. First-term examinations will be given during the last regular class period.

If illness or other uncontrollable circumstances prevent the taking of an examination at the scheduled time, the student is responsible to inform the class instructor as soon as possible. The instructor may give the grade Incomplete, depending on the circumstances. The incomplete cannot be given unless the student and the instructor together prepare a contractual agreement.

Note to students: If you have conflicting examinations or three or more examinations in one day, your instructor can make individual arrangement for an alternative test time.

Note to faculty: If the system assigns the same exam time for two of your day classes, please contact Class Scheduling at (801) 422-0999. For evening classes, contact Evening Classes at (801) 422-2873.

Salt Lake Center Final Exams

Final exams for BYU Salt Lake Center classes are held at the regular class time for each class during the final exam period unless scheduled by the instructor in the BYU Salt Lake Testing Center. (Final exams will be moved to Saturday during winter semester for Thursday classes to avoid conflict with graduation exercises and during fall semester with Friday classes to avoid conflict with an exam preparation day.) Should a conflict arise between the exam schedule of a Provo and a Salt Lake Center final exam, it is the responsibility of the student to talk with the instructor as soon as possible to make other arrangements at the Salt Lake Center.
