Final Examinations

Academic Policy 6-2009

Effective: August 1, 2009

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 and in the room and at the time specified for each class in the Schedule of Courses.

During regular semesters, no final examinations may be administered within two weeks of the final examination period although chapter or unit tests may be given. 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.
