Final Exam Schedule

Boston College has different exam schedules for Undergraduate and Graduate level courses as follows (courses at the combined Undergrad/Grad level follow the Undergraduate level exam schedule; for any questions check with the course instructor):

Undergraduate Course Exams

Undergraduate Courses Exams either have a standard exam or a common exam.

Standard exams: Undergraduate classes that meet in time slots starting between 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

NOTE:If you do not see your class meeting time on the grid below, and the class meeting time falls halfway between two class time slots, use the corresponding exam time slot for the later class time slot. For example, a class meeting MW starting at 8:30 should use the MWF 9 class meeting time slot to determine the corresponding exam times.

Common Exams:some undergraduate courses with multiple class sections; these are grouped together to provide ease in the administration of the exams. Review the Common Exam tab for those courses to which this type of exam applies.

Graduate Course Exams

Graduate Courses Exams:meets on the same day of the week on which the class meets during the semester and follows this grid on the Graduate Courses Exams tab.

Multiple Exam Policy

Students are expected to take no more than two final exams in any one day. If a student has three exams scheduled in one day and one of these is a common exam, it is the responsibility of the instructor holding the common exam to give a make-up exam.

If a student has three regularly scheduled exams (this can occur if the student is taking a course that meets at 4:00 p.m. or later), the instructor teaching the course outside of the standard time blocks (8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.) should provide a make-up exam.

If a student has two exams scheduled at the same time, the instructor teaching the course that meets later in the week during the semester should provide a make-up exam (for example, if a student is enrolled in a course that meets on Mondays from 4:30–6:50, and is additionally enrolled in a course that meets on Wednesdays from 4:30–6:50, the instructor of the Wednesday course should provide the make-up exam).

Note: a student may elect to take all three exams as scheduled; it is up to the student to inquire with their instructors regarding the rescheduling of their exams.

If a student has a conflict between a common exam and a regularly scheduled late afternoon or evening course exam, the responsibility for a make-up lies with the instructor offering the common exam.

For clarification on these policies, please reach out to academicservices@bc.edu.
