Final Exams and Exam Schedules  

Common Exam

The 'common exam' is an exam that is given simultaneously to several sections of a multiple section course.  Designated periods for 'common exams' are 6:00 am - 7:30 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 7:00 am - 7:50 am on Thursdays.  Common exams are scheduled on a 'first-come, first-served basis.' Instructors wanting to schedule an exam should review the Common Exam schedule below and then email Surbeck Scheduling to schedule an exam.
SD Mines Policy Manual Policy II-3 lists the Common Examination Scheduling instructions.  The common exam period is not to be used for routine exams for a single section course.
