Final Exam Schedules

Please read the following information thoroughly, the Spring 2021 Exam Schedule has been adjusted to protect the health, safety, and well-being of the faculty, staff, and students as we resume on-campus instruction.

For these reasons we will not use the traditional CCU Final Examination Schedule. Instead, all courses will follow one of the scenerios outlined below, as well as introduce some modifications to the Final Examination description in the CCU Catalog. 


SCENARIO I: Instructors may opt to give students an in-person final exam during the week of Monday, May 3 through Friday, May 7, 2021 using their regularly scheduled face-to-face class time (i.e. if class is TTH from 12:15pm-1:30pm, exam will be held on those days at that time).

In this scenario, instructors are still expected to offer course activities/instruction online during the last week of classes (Monday, May 3 through Saturday, May 8, 2021).


SCENARIO II: Instructors may opt to give an online final exam during the week of Monday, May 3 through Friday, May 7, 2021, maintaining normal instruction during the week of Monday, May 3 through Saturday, May 8.

The final exam may be given during the required class time or the instructor may opt to give students a 72-hour window to start the final exam provided that the exam start time is no later than Friday, May 7, 2021 at 8:00 a.m.

NOTE: In classes in which one-on-one oral exams are required (i.e. foreign language classes) these may be scheduled based on availability of instructor and student.



  • All course syllabi must clearly state whether the final exam is face-to-face or online or some combination of these two formats and the date(s) that the final exam will be administered.
  • Quizzes, tests, and final exams may be given during any class period within the last two weeks of the semester provided that this information is clearly stated on the class syllabus.
  • Any student with three examinations scheduled on the same day may arrange for an alternate examination time with the instructor of the second examination. The instructor of the second examination will make the necessary arrangements upon the student's request.
  • Final grades are due Tuesday, May 11, 2021 by 5:00 p.m.
