Note: Loyola’s policy regarding the scheduling of exams is that Final Exams are not to be given during the last week of instruction. Final Exams are to be given only during the designated times within the Exam period (see below). Unit tests may be assigned during the last week of class.

Final Exams given during the final week of instruction interfere with a student’s ability to meet their obligations to their other classes. A student encountering a class in which the instructor intends to offer a Final Exam during the final week of classes is encouraged to notify their dean’s office.


Beginning in Spring, 2016 a new LOCUS feature is being piloted for the Quinlan Undergraduate School of Business, the School of Communication and the School of Education. If you are teaching classes or are enrolled in classes offered by these Schools, you will find Final Exam Times posted on your Exam Schedule in LOCUS which should adhere to the following schedule. Students should confirm the Exam Times with their Instructor.
