Final Examination Schedule

The times and locations for examinations are available each term on line at the Registrar’s Office Web site.

Final examination dates and times for 2013–2014 are: December 12-17, 2013 and May 1-6, 2014.

Rules governing the conduct of final examinations are given in chapter II of the YCPS and on line under the heading “Reading Period and Final Examination Period.”

An examination group number is assigned to every course. Examination group assignments are based on course meeting times, according to the following scheme. Hours shown are the times at which courses begin:

  (31) M, W, or F, 8:20 a.m.      
  (32) M, W, or F, 9 or 9:25 a.m.   (22) T or Th, 9 or 9:25 a.m.
  (33) M, W, or F, 10:30 a.m.   (23) T or Th, 10:30 a.m.
  (34) M, W, or F, 11:35 a.m.   (24) T or Th, 11:35 a.m.
  (36) M, W, or F, 1 or 1:30 p.m.   (26) T or Th, 1 or 1:30 p.m.
  (37) M, W, or F, after 2 p.m.   (27) T or Th, after 2 p.m.

With the exception of courses assigned to common examination groups, a change in class meeting time will alter the examination time.

Courses with multiple sections but a common examination are assigned to an examination group from (61) to (69). Typical assignments include (but are not limited to): (61) foreign languages; (63) introductory-level English; (64) introductory economics; (69) introductory mathematics.

Courses in group (0) usually have no final examination. Most often they culminate in a term essay or other final exercise, but note that instructors of such courses may still schedule a regular final examination based on the course starting time.

If you take two courses with the same examination group number in the same term, you will be charged $35 for a makeup examination.

Note: Beginning with 2013–2014, the examination period has been shortened from eight days to six. Be prepared for more evening exams and plan accordingly.
