Current Student Forms and Resources
- Conflict Exam Request Form – If a student has no accommodations, this form is due by the last day of classes for that semester. If a student has academic accommodations, this form is due to both OAS and the decanal advisor two weeks before the last day of classes for that semester. During final exam week, one or more of the following could occur with final in-class exams: 1) two exams scheduled for the same time slot, 2) six or more hours of exams scheduled within the same calendar day, or 3) six or more hours of exams start and end within a 24-hour period. If students’ academic accommodations create one of these above conditions, that also qualifies. Students must review the exam schedule in advance. If students find themselves in one of these circumstances, they are encouraged to submit a conflict exam request form to move one of the conflicting exams to the last exam slot of the week (the conflict exam date), noted in each semester’s exam schedule.
