Exam Conflicts

Beginning fall 2017, exams are in conflict* when:

  • Two exams begin within 25 hours. (Example, an exam that begins at 8:30 am on Monday followed by an exam that begins at 8:30 am on Tuesday is considered a conflict. Two exams that are scheduled on the same day and time; or two exams in the same day - one morning and one afternoon - are considered in conflict.)
  • Three or more exams are scheduled on consecutive days.

Students may move an exam in conflict but must take the conflicting exam on the first available make-up date that breaks the conflict.  Under no circumstances is a student allowed to take a make-up exam earlier than the scheduled exam date.  Make-up dates are noted on the exam conflict form.  The exam conflict form will be posted at the appropriate time each semester in MyLaw on the Office of the Registrar and Student Life Department site.

*Prior to fall 2017, exams are in conflict if: 1) exams met at the same time and day; 2) exams were on the same day; 3) an afternoon exam was followed by a morning exam; 4) an morning exam of more than four hours is followed by a morning exam on the next day; 5) three or more exams are scheduled on consecutive days.
