Make-Up Exams or Early Finals

If a student needs to take a make-up exam or early final:

Given the volume of test accommodations needed, particularly during the three days of final exams, and because of the space limitations in the Academic Support Center, the ability of Academic Support to proctor make-up or early final exams is minimal. Faculty should make every effort to arrange for students to take make-up or early exams at a mutually convenient time and location (such as the professor's office, joining another class in a different final exam timeslot, an empty classroom, an available conference room). When such an arrangement is not possible, the professor can contact Academic Support to give the exam, if space is available. (Please note that during the term, early or make-up exams are only given on Tuesdays through Thursdays from 1:00-3:00 p.m.). As with accommodated tests, the student needs to confirm the appointment with Academic Support. Professors can drop off the exam or email it to but must then pick up the exam after the student has completed it.

To sign up for a test, the student will need to follow the steps below:

  1. The student will need to pick up the Test Scheduling Form from Academic Support.
  2. A form needs to be filled out completely for each test. The form has a student section and a professor section. Please make sure the professor signs the form.
  3. The form needs to be returned to Academic Support no later than one working day before the exam.
  4. The student will also need to remind the professor to deliver the exam to Academic Support. Please remind them no later than one working day before the exam date. The professor can send the test via email to

If any change in exam arrangements is necessary, please notify the Academic Support Center as soon as possible by contacting 630-637-5266.
