Can I reschedule a deferred final exam if I have a conflict with the date and time?

Instructional Testing Services cannot reschedule deferred finals. All rescheduling must be arranged directly with the instructor.

How do I arrange to take a deferred exam?

You must arrange the appointment directly with your instructor. Once confirmed, the instructor will then provide the examination and instructions to Instructional Testing Services.

If I missed more than one final exam, can I take them all on the deferred exam test date?

No, a student may defer only one exam per semester. If you need to take more than one missed exam, you will need to make arrangements with your instructors.

What should I bring with me to the test?

In addition to photo identification, examinees should bring any instructor-approved testing aids such as calculators, notes, etc. Unapproved items will not be permitted in the exam room.
