Final examinations are required in all courses except directed reading, research, seminar and composition courses. Final examinations are to be administered during the final examination period specified in the UH Hilo Academic Calendar. Examinations will be administered at the location where the class has been taught at time specified in the regular semesters. No final examinations may be administered within two weeks of the final examination period although chapter or unit tests may be given during that time. Final examinations in some laboratory courses may be administered during the final week of classes. In the compressed schedule of summer sessions, final exams must be administered as close to the end of the session as possible.
