During finals week, final examinations should be given during your last regularly scheduled class time. If you have a student(s) who has a time conflict with the Lawrence campus final examination schedule, please contact Ben Wolfe, Director of the Academic & Faculty Support Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proctoring Student Exams
Proctoring exams is the responsibility of the faculty who is teaching the course. Sometimes, however, there is a need for an individual student to complete an exam outside of the regularly scheduled class period. If this is the case, faculty can make arrangements for the exam to be given in the Edwards Campus administrative conference room by contacting Lisa Browning at email@example.com. Due to constraints in Proctor staffing, we request that you keep these requests to a minimum. Priority is given to students requiring accommodations for testing. Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.
Cancelation of Classes
When there is the possibility of inclement weather, please call our class cancelation line at 913-897-8499 for Edwards Campus closings. It is rare classes are ever canceled at the Edwards Campus. If you need to cancel your class for personal reasons, it is your responsibility to contact your students by email and creating an announcement within your Blackboard class. Directions for doing this can be found here. It is also helpful to alert our reception desk at 913-897-8400.
