Requests for Final Exam Excuses

CAPS may issue final exam excuses (during final exam week only - no exam excuses are issued during the semester) when a psychiatric disorder debilitates a student during the period of time that encompasses the final exam.

Students may be evaluated at CAPS. Evaluations can be conducted during triage hours. Visit us between 9:00 am - 12:00 pm or 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Monday - Thursday or 9:30 - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm on Friday. No appointment is necessary.

If a student is placed on the Final Exam Excuse List, the student must go to the Office of the University Registrar to pick up an “official permit” to take to their professor to make arrangements to re-schedule the exam.

For medical illness, see What to do if You are Ill During Final Exams.
