Exam Conflict and Reschedule Policy

Exams can be rescheduled only when they meet the faculty voted policy and only for the reasons enumerated. Exams conflict when:

  • Two exams scheduled within 23 hours. For example, an exam that begins at 8:30 am followed by an exam that begins at 1:30 pm.
  • Two exams scheduled at the same time. 
  • Three or more exams 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. Requests to reschedule an exam for weddings, baptisms, retirement parties, booked travel arrangements, etc., will not be granted. The Law School Registrar will post the exam conflict form via survey, at the appropriate time each semester (typically November for fall, April for spring).
