Accommodations Due to Final Examination Schedule Conflicts

Accommodations Due to Final Examination Schedule Conflicts
Printable Version Printable Version

Senate has determined that the University will strive to schedule final examinations conflict free and with:

  • No student having two examinations in a row.
  • No student writing in the last period on one day and the first period the next day.

Where this cannot be accomplished for a particular student, the University shall ensure relief by making alternative scheduling arrangements for that student. Students can elect to accept examination combinations that violate these constraints. In doing so, they understand that petitions or appeals based on a violation of the above conflicts will not be granted.

If students have an examination conflict with a Laurier final exam (two examinations at the same day/time) that has been detected during the examination scheduling process, the department/instructor will be notified by the Registrar's Office and asked to contact the individual students to discuss alternative examination arrangements to be determined by the department/instructor.

If students have an examination conflict (two examinations at the same day/time) that was not detected during the examination scheduling process, they must complete the Final Examination Timetable Conflict Form from the Registrar's Office website. The Registrar's Office will confirm the conflict, then notify the department/instructor so that they can contact the individual students to discuss alternative examination arrangements to be determined by the department/instructor.
