Need To Make A Change To Your Exam Schedule?
The exam schedule is below. With approval from the teacher, finals can be moved from one day to another as long as it is within the 3-day finals schedule. This is especially helpful if your student has three difficult finals in one day. These request forms are available in the counselors’ offices and due back by Wednesday, December 13. Students must complete all of their finals before the Christmas Break. If students fail to do this, they earn a zero for the final exam.
