Content & Scope

The examination schedule is prepared each term for most graduate and undergraduate final examinations held during the formal examination period. Scheduling is an iterative process requiring coordination between the Registrar's Office, which is responsible for creating the schedule, and the academic units, which determine what examinations need to be held.

The official record is the final examination timetable (preliminary versions and related communications are transitory records).
