Final Exams

Scheduled final exam times are listed in in PRISMConfirm time and location with your course instructor / course syllabus.

In the course schedule, the final exam code indicates the campus, date and time block of the exam. For example, "G17-2" indicates the exam is at UW-Marathon County on the 17th during the 2nd exam time (10:30-12:30 pm).

G = UW-Marathon County

First number = Date (e.g. 17 = Dec. 17)

Exam Time blocks

  • 1 = 8:00 am - 10:00 am
  • 2 = 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
  • 3 = 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
  • 4 = 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
  • 5 = 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Final examinations in courses offered for two or more credits shall not exceed two hours in length, and shall be given at the time indicated in the published schedule, unless the faculty member has received permission for an alternative time. An exception to this policy is a take-home final exam, which may be given only if departmental policy permits.

Final exams in courses offered for two or more credits may not be given during a regular class period. This does not preclude an instructor's making special arrangements for individual students.

Final exams in one-credit courses or those offered for less than a semester may be given either prior to or during the final class.

If a student has more than two exams on one day or two exams scheduled for the same time, he/she must make arrangements at least one week in advance with one instructor to take an exam at an alternative time. When an informal arrangement cannot be made, the instructor of the course of lowest enrollment shall provide an alternative time.

Exams in studio or recital courses shall not conflict with other exams.

When an instructor does not return the final exam, students can review their final exam or discuss their final evaluations with the instructor up to one semester after the course is completed.

Students are expected to be in attendance at the scheduled final exam of each of their courses. Failure to attend an exam may result in automatic failure in that course.
