Final Exam Schedules

Final Exams

All examinations will be held in the regularly assigned classroom unless the instructor arranges for another room and notifies all students. Arrangements for examination (if required) for Applied Music, laboratory, clinical or activity courses will be made by instructors.

Classes that meet at nonstandard times or do not meet the entire time of the standard meeting time will not have a scheduled exam time. Hybrid courses will not have an exam time either. Instructors need to use caution in scheduling exams for non-standard times so that students will not have conflicts. Summer exams are typically held on the last day of class for each course.

Last Week of Classes

No undergraduate classes provided by Boise State University will give any test or examination during the last seven calendar days preceding the first day of the officially scheduled final examination period of the fall or spring semester (traditionally referred to as “Dead Week”), except in those particular courses that are offered in an accelerated time frame less than 15 weeks and/or wherein it is deemed necessary by departmental policy (e.g., lab, artistic performance, project presentation, team analysis, etc.). Online courses are expected to adhere to the policy whenever possible, but they are allowed to make exceptions when the course schedule differs from the regular semester schedule.

  • In-class final or take home final exams will be given and/or due during the officially scheduled final examination periods.
  • No take home test or exam may be made due during the last week of classes.
  • Test or exam dates during the last week of classes are not subject to 
personal preferences (e.g., faculty preference, class vote, or other means of 
general consensus).
  • Exceptions may be allowed for extenuating circumstances, on an individual 
student basis, to be arranged at a time agreeable to the faculty member.
  • Faculty will provide a clear statement in the course syllabus as to what is 
expected of students during the last week of class.
