Self-service enrollment verifications are available online in a format that is generally
acceptable for health insurance or loan providers. The verification includes the enrollment
term dates and indicates full-time or part-time status. Previous enrollment terms
are always available. Enrollment information is updated periodically throughout the
Final examinations are given at the end of each term. See the Academic Calendar for final exam dates.
Please note that final exams are scheduled by the University and not by individual
All examinations or alternate methods of evaluation will be given in the same room in which the course normally meets during the semester. Classes that use several rooms during the semester will have their final examination in the room in which they hold their first class of the week.
Any professor who must have his/her room changed for the final examination or alternate
method of evaluation should notify the Office of Records and Registration in writing
within one month of the beginning of the semester.
Final exam periods are 120 minutes in length for each 3-credit lecture component for a course. Lab components are excluded. Art studio courses will have two 120-minute final exam periods.
The starting time of the class determines the final exam day and time. For example: If one course meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. – 8:50 a.m. and another course meets Monday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. – 9:20 a.m., both would have the same final exam time of Monday from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. Courses starting after the class hours listed will follow the exam times for the prior hour. For example, a class held from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. will use the 8 a.m. exam period.
Exam hours for classes involving lecture and laboratories are determined by the hours scheduled for the lecture. Day classes that meet only once a week will have final exams on that day. Examinations for classes that begin and end on dates different from the start and end dates for the standard 15-week semester (including Saturday classes) will be given during the last regular class periods.
Postponed Exams: If final exams and alternate methods have to be postponed by the Administration, those
examinations will be held on the Friday and Saturday of final exam week. If the Administration
has to postpone finals or alternate methods, the announcements will be communicated
via email, website, local radio stations and in residence halls.

Final exams will not be given during the week preceding the designated exam period for each term. Make-up examinations and/or non-comprehensive final exams previously scheduled on the syllabus may be given. Students with special needs should make arrangements with their instructors.
Absence from an examination or alternate method due to a medical emergency must be supported by a medical excuse. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the professor involved prior to exam time and supply the professor with a written medical excuse.
If a student has two examinations scheduled at the same time or more than two examinations in one day, the student should try to resolve the conflict with the instructors
involved. If the problem cannot be resolved, the final for the class with the highest
course number will be rescheduled for the effected student.
Residency status is determined by the student’s permanent address upon admission to the University. If the permanent address is not in Pennsylvania, the student is considered a “non-resident” and is assessed out-of-state fees. Students who wish to request a change in residency status from non-resident to resident must submit an application, available in the Office of Records and Registration, and provide documentation required by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
