Exams

When will the final exam schedule be posted?
The fall Final Exam Schedule will be posted in mid-September. The spring final exam schedule will be posted in mid-February.

How can I determine when my exam is likely to take place before the exam schedule is posted?
Most courses are assigned a numeric Exam and Student Deadline Group, which is listed with course information in the my.harvard course search. The Exam and Student Deadline Groups in the Undergraduate Student Handbook list each exam group and the corresponding exam date. All students are advised that they should not make any travel plans until the official Final Examination Schedule is published in mid-September. Students are expected to be in residence for the duration of the Final Examination Period. 

I have two exams scheduled for the same time on the same date. How do I resolve this?
If you have two FAS exams scheduled at the same time on the same date, the Registrar's Office is aware of the conflict and will automatically schedule an out of sequence exam for one of the courses--a non-conflicting time within 24 hours of the original time and date. You will receive an email notification with the details of your rescheduled exam from the Registrar's Office by the last day of classes.

I have two exams scheduled back-to-back on the same day. Can one of the exams be moved to a different date?
Please note that having two exams scheduled on the same day at different times (i.e. one in the morning and one in the afternoon) is not considered a conflict. Exams will not be rescheduled in this case.

I am an FAS student cross-registered for a course at another school (or I am a graduate student cross-registered for a course at FAS) and my FAS exam conflicts with the final exam date for the other course. How do I resolve this?
If you have a conflict between an FAS exam and an exam at another school (HBS, HLS, MIT), notify the Registrar's Office of the conflict (exams@fas.harvard.edu).
