Final Grades and Exams

Final grades are available to students after the final exam period. Please note that Registration and Records does not mail grade reports unless specifically requested. To view your grades, navigate to your My.Butler Student Center, select “Grades” from the “Other Academic” dropdown menu, and select the correct term. Questions about grades should be directed to the course instructor.

All final examinations must be given on the scheduled date and at the scheduled time. The dates and times of all final examinations are published on the Registration and Records website so that a student can know at the time of enrollment what the final examination schedule will be. No official provision exists for arranging a special examination to accommodate a student with a heavy concentration of examinations on a single day. Wherever possible, therefore, a student wishing to avoid such concentration should consult the final examination schedule before registering and plan accordingly.

Applied music examinations are scheduled for students by the chairperson of the School of Music in the Jordan College of the Arts. The schedule is posted on the main bulletin board in the lobby of Lilly Hall approximately two weeks before examinations begin.

If a student is unable to take a final examination for reasons beyond the student’s control, the instructor should be informed immediately so appropriate arrangements can be made. If convinced that circumstances warrant it, an instructor may administer a make-up examination to a student who is unable to take the final examination on the scheduled date. No instructor, however, is authorized to administer a final examination before the scheduled date. The instructor, the appropriate department head, the student’s academic dean and the dean of the college in which the course is taught must approve any petition for an exception to this rule.

Final examinations in 4-hour, 5-hour, and 6-hour courses are three hours in length; other courses have two-hour examinations. Examinations in 1- or 2-hour courses are arranged by the instructor. Examinations are normally held in the room regularly occupied by the class if it is available. Room assignments will be sent to departments at least a month before exams are held. Examinations for all daytime classes, with the exception of GHS 201–211 and MA 106–107 courses, will begin and end according to the schedule in the table below.

Classes that do not start on the hour are placed in an examination period by the hour of the start of the class and by the first day of the class. For example, classes that meet on Tuesday and Thursday at 9:35 to 10:50 AM are scheduled into the 9:00 AM TR examination period.

Evening Class Examinations

Classes that start at 4:00 PM or later follow the evening examination schedule. All evening examinations will be given on the night that class is typically held starting at 6:00 PM and ending at 8:00 PM for 3 hour courses and 9:00 PM for 4–6 hour courses. For classes meeting twice a week, the examination should be given on the first night at 6:00 PM. Evening class examinations begin on Monday, December 12, and end on Friday, December 16.
