Create Exam Outside Regular Meeting Pattern


If an exam (or other meeting) needs to be scheduled outside of a class section's standard meeting pattern (for instance, during the Community Hour), then a new meeting pattern must be added to the class section before the class is made available in Class Search. Adding the non-standard exam to the class section will allow students to see the time commitment before they enroll. It will also prevent time conflicts between this class and any other class in which a student might enroll. The non-standard meeting time must be approved by your school’s dean.

This guide will describe how to create an exam outside the standard meeting pattern. To indicate that a class section will use the university’s final exam schedule, see the guide Indicate a Final Exam.

This change cannot be made when Display in Class Search is checked. For more on the Display in Class Search checkbox, see the guide The Finished Product.
