Create Exam Outside Regular Meeting Pattern


If an exam must be scheduled in the midst of the semester outside of a class section's standard meeting pattern (for instance, during the Community Hour), then a Meeting Pattern must be added to the class section before the Print checkbox is turned on. Adding the non-standard exam (or other meeting) to the class section record will allow students to see the time commitment in the Schedule of Classes before they enroll in the course. It will also prevent time conflicts from occurring between this class section and any other class in which a student might try to enroll. The non-standard meeting time must be approved by the responsible Dean before Print is activated on the class section affected.

This process is not meant to be utilized to schedule final exams during the final exam week.

After Print = Ø
