Make-up Final Exams

If you were not financially approved to take your finals from the 2020 spring semester prior to WAE Week, you will have until midnight on Wednesday, September 2, to complete them. Once you are financially approved, the Finance Office will communicate with the Academic Department. You will receive an email once you have been given access to the exams on Canvas through the Late Finals course.

If you did not attend WCBC during the 2020 spring semester, and you were not financially approved to take your finals at the end of your last semester, your finals have been pulled and are ready for you. The Academic Department will be proctoring make-up final exams in the Library on Monday and Tuesday of WAE Week from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. On Wednesday, late finals will be given in the Academic Office from 9:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. No exams will be given to a student after 3:45 p.m. on any of these days to ensure that each student has enough time to complete their exam. Unless given special permission from the Academic Committee, students will not be able to complete any final exams after Wednesday, September 2. Please plan enough time to take all of your exams by then.
