FINAL EXAM INFORMATION
Final Exam Grid
The final exam grid is posted on the Sacramento State Portal and is available to students, staff and faculty at
http://www.csus.edu/schedule/ActiveFinalExamSched.html. The grid outlines the day and time patterns for final exams and summarizes the final exam policy.
Final Exam Schedule
The final exam schedule identifying facility assignments for fall and spring terms is generated by Space Management and is maintained in Astra Schedule. Astra Schedule final exam schedule reports are distributed to academic colleges and departments each November for fall terms and each April for spring terms. Some final examination schedule information may be listed in CMS, yet that information is incomplete and may be inaccurate. Students shall verify their final examination schedules with their faculty and/or departments.
When to Request Rooms for Final Exam Exceptions
Final exam exception requests (room changes, additions, special requests, requests for IRT PC labs) are processed by Space Management after the final exam schedule is complete, usually the month prior to the actual exams. For fall, the final exam schedule is typically complete by mid-April; for spring, the final exam schedule is typically complete by mid-November.
Academic departments will receive email notification from Space Management on how and when to request a final exam exception each semester at the same time the final exam schedule is complete. Final exam exception correspondence shall be sent directly to Deneilia Pappas via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space request forms for final exams are not required or accepted.
All final exam change requests, additional final exam requests, and special final exam requests are processed on a first come, first served basis. The following information is required in an email request: description or reason for final exam exception request, course subject, course id, section number, day, time, current room assignment, and actual enrollment. Faculty should request final exam changes through their department office rather than direct contact with Space Management. Final exam exception requests to change the final exam schedule to another day and time are subject to review and approval by Academic Affairs.
Events Requested During Finals Week
Requests for events during finals week are scheduled after the final exam schedule is complete. Event requests during finals week will be kept on file until the appropriate time for scheduling which is approximately a month prior to final exams.
