    Petition to write the conflict exam.
    Petitions must be received by the end of the final class in the semester, and approved - signed by your professor - before Reading Day.
    . Note that all Finance 300 examinations are non-combined.

    From the student code: 3-201 Final Examinations

    (5)
    ...Any student having more than two consecutive final examinations is entitled to rescheduling as follows if he or she takes the following action no later than the last day of classes:
      (A) The student must investigate whether a conflict examination is being held at another time for any of the examinations involved. Note: Instructional staff members are urged to announce any conflict final examinations by the last day of classes.
      (B) If a conflict examination has been scheduled for any of the courses, the student must take one or more of these conflict examinations. If conflict examinations are offered for more than one course, the student must take the conflict for the course that has the largest number of students.
      (C) If no conflict examinations have been scheduled, the student must contact the instructor of the course having the largest number of students. The contact must be made no later than the last day of classes, and that instructor must provide a makeup examination.

    (6)
    Normally in a semester several combined-sections, conflict, and noncombined examinations are given at the same time. As a guide to resolving conflicts, an order of priority has been established within each examination period, and a student should resolve a conflict using the published examination schedules and the following priority guidelines.
      (A) National and state professional examinations (e.g., CPA, actuarial science, Architecture Registration Examination) take priority over campus final examinations. An instructor must offer a conflict examination to a student scheduled to take a national or state professional examination and a campus final examination at the same time.
      (B) A noncombined course examination has precedence over any combined-sections or conflict examination.
      (C) A department offering a combined-sections final examination must provide a conflict examination if required to accommodate student conflicts.
