Final Exams

Final exams are required to allow 2 hours and 45 minutes. To meet this requirement a special schedule is created for final exams for the last week of fall and spring semesters. Only full term face-to-face on-campus classes have exams scheduled by the Office of the Registrar (labs, practicums, distance delivery, or off-campus classes do not get a final exam assigned). If in doubt, check with your instructor. Most classes will remain in the same room but the meeting time of the final exam will be different. The final exam schedule is made available on this page the day the schedule goes live for the semester. The Fall Semester goes live in March, while the Spring Semester goes live in October.

  • Additional Information
    • The final exam search didn't find my class. Why?
      • Only full term classes have exams scheduled by the Office of the Registrar (labs, practicums, etc. do not get a final exam assigned). If in doubt, check with your instructor.
      • User typed the wrong course number or section such as "Math A106" instead of "Math A105". Tip: You can search for "Math A" or "MATH" for a listing of all Math classes. The search is not case sensitive. 
      • Please contact uaa.scheduling@alaska.edu with any questions regarding final exams.
    • Why has my class moved to a different location?

      Classes are only moved when the original room is not available. This occurs with classes that meet once a week because they share an exam time block with another once-a-week class. Example: Monday class at 5:30pm 8:15pm has the same exam time/room as Wednesday class at 5:30pm-8:15pm, both meeting on Wednesday from 4pm to 6:45pm for their exam.

    • Why do two of my classes that meet once a week have the final exam at the same time?
      This occurs with classes that meet once a week because they share an exam time block with another once-a-week class meeting in the same location on a different day. Example: Monday class at 5:30pm-8:15pm will be assigned the same exam time/room as Wednesday at 5:30pm 8:15pm class, both meeting on Wednesday at 4pm 6:45pm for their exam. This is due to a limited number of exam time blocks for classes meeting once a week. Our office catches most of these conflicts before posting the schedule. Conflicts do not occur with classes that meet twice a week. Please contact uaa.scheduling@alaska.edu to confirm or schedule your final exam as soon as possible.
    • Can I change my exam time?
      If you are one of the few instructors who ended up with two exams scheduled at the same time, then the answer is “yes”. Please contact uaa.scheduling@alaska.edu or 907-786-1577 to move one final exam as soon as possible. Another option is to hold a final exam online.
    • How can I avoid final exam conflicts?
      Schedule twice-a-week classes using standard time blocks.
