Midterm and Final Exam Conflicts with Regularly Scheduled Classes

Per the University Calendar:

"...Students have the right to attend regularly scheduled class activities. Therefore, if a student has a conflict between a regularly scheduled class and a scheduled term examination, the instructor of the class in which there was a scheduled term examination will be required to make an accommodation for the student."
