Final Exam Schedule

We offer detailed, one page printable PDF files of the final exam schedule for your convenience. This schedule is also printed on the bottom of the corresponding academic calendar.

Final Exam Policy: A final examination or its equivalent must be given in each course. All final examinations, whether cumulative or unit, or their equivalent, must be given at the time scheduled by the registrar during final examination week. There are to be no final examinations or their equivalent given during the last week of classes each semester. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved in advance by the dean of the academic unit in which the course is being offered.

Students who find themselves required by the schedule to take three examinations in one day may choose to take the middle examination at another time. Students who wish to do this must inform the appropriate instructor as soon as possible, but no later than the last scheduled class, so that a mutually acceptable alternative time may be arranged. If such an arrangement cannot be worked out, the student should contact the dean's office of the school in which the course is offered.

Fall 2018 final exam schedule:

Thank you to everyone that completed the academic calendar survey. The survey results have given us an opportunity to consider strategic changes as we build future calendars and make impactful incremental shifts to already published calendars.

On behalf of the Academic Calendar Committee and in consultation with the provost, Faculty Council and the Student Governance Council I am pleased to announce that Ithaca College will pilot a 4-day final exam schedule during the fall 2018 term.

The official last day of the fall 2018 term is now Thursday, December 20, 2018 instead of Friday, December 21, 2018. The new exam schedule can be found at

We look forward to your feedback, via an additional survey, that will be conducted in December 2018 after the pilot exam week.
