Important Information

  • Remember to sign up five (5) days or ten (10) days in advance.

  • You are encouraged to schedule all your tests and final exams at the beginning of the quarter based on the dates in your syllabus. It is easier to change a scheduled exam than to handle late requests. If dates change, email us.

  • You are expected to take the exam on the same date and time as the class. For scheduling conflicts, communicate with your instructor. For example, a student with back-to-back classes may be able to begin an exam for the first class early in order to not miss the second class due to extended time. Make this request by email and copy your instructor at as soon as possible  so s/he can give approval by replying to all.

  • After you schedule your quiz, test, or mid-term, you and your instructor will receive automated email reminders four (4) and two (2) days prior to the exam .

  • After you schedule your final exam, you and your instructor will receive automated email reminders eight (8) and three (3) days prior to the exam .
