Memo from Provost and VP, Academic Affairs, F. Wayne Vaught, PhD

Friday, December 10, 2021 and Thursday, April 28, 2022

for the 2021-22 Academic Calendar.

Faculty should encourage students to use this day to prepare for exams, complete assignments, or work on upcoming
assignments. All academic calendars are approved by the Academic Affairs Council and the President’s Council.



Guidelines

  1. UVU policy 601 - Classroom Management, requires faculty members to give a final examination / assessment that takes place during exam week. 
    • The final exam schedule allows for a one-hour and fifty minute block of time for each exam / assessment. This block is based on the combination of regular meeting days and times. In order for this final exam scheduling method to work effectively, many classes will "shift" from their regular day, time and / or location.
    • Final exams / assessments are not to be changed from the published schedule for any reason. Doing so creates conflicts for student schedules and for space assignments.
    • All supervisory levels should communicate clear expectations to their faculty at the beginning of each semester, and promptly correct any intentional or accidental misunderstandings.

  2. FULL semester classes advertised and delivered as:
    • Face-to-face or Livestream must follow the published final exam schedule when a face-to-face or livestream exam / assessment is planned.
    • Online or Individualized are assigned a final exam / assessment by the primary instructor in Canvas during the final exam window / week.

  3. BLOCK semester (or condensed) classes ––regardless of delivery method–– hold final exams / assessments:
      • Block 1: on the last day of class (before block 2 begins).
      • Block 2: on the last day of class prior to finals week.
      • Canvas closes on the last meet day of each block.

  4. If a class regularly starts later than 50 minutes after the hour (i.e. 7:55am), then the instructions for the next class start time should be followed (i.e. 8am - 8:50am).

  5. A faculty member shall, when requested by a student, provide an alternate exam time for a student with more than three final exams on the same day (or two final exams scheduled for the same date and time). Student shall submit a written request in a timely manner for alternate arrangements. Refer to UVU Policy 601.

  6. By design, Livestream final exams are not held in a classroom. However, if a specific need arises, the instructor (or authorized department scheduler) can request a room from the Academic Scheduling office.

  7. If your final exam is administered through UVU Testing Services, the final exam schedule may not apply. Please refer to https://www.uvu.edu/testingservices/ for more information.
