Self Scheduled Exam Procedures & Rules

Exam Distribution

Examinations administered by the Registrar’s Office under the Self-Scheduled Examination System, not including take-home examinations and self-scheduled exams administered by Administrative Assistants, will be distributed in Room 1106 by the law school’s exam room proctors during the following times:

  • Between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., from Thursday, December 5, 2019, through Monday, December 16, 2109. 
  • Self-scheduled exams administered by the Registrar’s Office will NOT be available for pick-up on Saturdays and Sundays. 
  • No self-directed examinations may be taken on the last scheduled day of examinations.
  • Take home examinations will be distributed by the faculty member’s administrative assistant in accordance with the professor’s guidelines.
  • Self-scheduled exams will be taken in room 1107.  Thus, once you pick up your exam in room 1106, you should proceed across the hallway to room 1107.
Students will be required to show their current student identification cards when requesting an examination.


Self-scheduled examinations must be completed within the allotted time and returned to room 1106 no later than 5:00 p.m.  Thus, you must calculate your pick-up time accordingly, especially for those student s who receive the special accommodation of extra time.

Time Limits

Students are solely responsible for ascertaining the amount of time allowed for each examination they are taking. If a student has any question about the length of time they are allowed for any given examination, they must verify the allotted time with the registrar’s office before picking up the examination.

  • There will be two automatic time/date stamping clocks in classroom 1106.  Students must stamp the examination packet taken with the time and date upon leaving the room, and with the time and date of when they return the examination to the proctor in classroom 1106. The student is responsible to ensure the time and date stamps are present on their examinations.
  • The law school’s examination proctor will compare the start and end times of the returned examination. If the time stamps fall within the allotted time as stated on the instructions, the proctor will check the examination back in as complete.

When an examination exceeds the allotted time:

  • Students are granted a 5-minute grace period in order to allow for travel time to and from Exam Central, classroom 1106. Any examination returned within the 5-minute grace period will be checked back in as complete.
  • If an examination is returned beyond the 5-minute grace period, the law school examination proctor will fill out the Registrar’s Examination Incident Report and bring the examination in question to the registrar’s office for verification of the time used.
  • Any examination returned to the registrar’s office shall be verified against the official examination accommodation list. If the examination in question falls within the student’s accommodation, the examination will be returned to Exam Central in classroom 1106 and checked back in as complete.
  • If the Registrar determines that a student exceeded their allotted time, the examination will be forwarded to the Executive Associate Dean, Academic Affairs for investigation.

Honor Code

Students are reminded they are bound by the Honor Code and should not discuss a self-directed examination during the scheduled examination period.
