You may encounter a conflict during exam season. You should have been notified three weeks prior to the start of the exam period, however, it is always best to double check for yourself. This includes: two exams at the same time, three exams in 24 hours, four exams in two days, or five exams in three days. Conflicts also exist for religious holidays.


If you believe you have an exam conflict, fill out this form.

We hope you have a great weekend! Remember that Campus Life & Engagement is here to help you if you have any questions during your first year—or any year after!
