Cornell University School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions

Winter Session 2020 will run from December 26, 2019 to January 18, 2020, with three-week on-campus classes beginning on January 2, 2020. We will update the Winter Session site in September. If you would like to receive an email when this happens, please join our email list. In the meantime, you may want to browse through the site to get an idea of what we offer.

Final exams

Final examinations will be held on January 19, 2019, at a time to be arranged by the instructor.

The course classroom will be used unless a change is announced by the instructor.

A course that requires an end-of-class exercise (for example, a paper, project report, final critique, oral presentation, or conference) in lieu of or in addition to a traditional final examination, must state the nature of the exercise at the beginning of the session. If there is no final examination in a course, an announcement must be made to that effect.

A course that requires an end-of-class exercise and does not offer a final examination, must allow students at least until January 19, 2019, to complete submission of materials associated with the culminating exercise. (For example, a student making a presentation during the last week of classes or the study period will have at least until the scheduled final-exam date to submit a final write-up or equivalent.)

Proposed deviations from the final-examination schedule must be submitted in writing for approval by the senior associate dean of the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions and are permitted only if all class members and the instructor agree on the change and it has been determined that no student in the class has a conflict in time.

Directors of off-campus/special programs schedule their own examinations. Participants should check with the director.
