The Office of the University Registrar is responsible for the development and publication of a final exam schedule each term.

This page is updated throughout the academic year to reflect the most updated information. The Rules Governing Final Examinations are provided by the Provost Office.

Spring 2023 Final Examination Schedule

Spring 2023 Final Exams will take place Monday, May 1, 2023 through Tuesday, May 9, 2023, excluding weekends.

The schedule and locations for in-person, synchronous final exams will be available on Friday, February 10, 2023 and can be found in Path on the Section Details Panel. The published schedule will be subject to change and the campus community is strongly encouraged to check their exam information in Path periodically. Once published, the day and time of exams should be fairly stable, however room assignments may change.

In-person synchronous exams will be held at the following times during the Final Exam Period:

  • 9:00 AM – 11:00AM
  • 12:00PM – 2:00PM

College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS) synchronous exams are administered from 6-8pm. Students in courses that meet Saturday or Sunday must confirm the exam day and time with their instructor.

Instructors may choose to hold asynchronous/take-home final exams. Take-home final exams may be due at any point during the final exam period but must be completed no later than Tuesday, May 9, 2023. Students should check with their instructor for more information.

Student Disabilities Services (SDS) provides services for students with disabilities to ensure equal educational opportunities and access. For support please visit https://wlrc.vpul.upenn.edu/.

The deadline for instructors and departments to request a synchronous, in-person final exam was January 13, 2023. Late exam requests will be accommodated as possible, however, space is limited and scheduling conflicts for students are not easily avoided when scheduling exams late. In some cases, late exams can cause changes to other, previously scheduled exams. The campus community is strongly encouraged to check the exam information in Path periodically.

The official period for postponed examinations will be January 12 – January 19, 2023.

Examinations that are postponed because of conflicts with other examinations, or because more than two examinations are scheduled in the same day, may be taken at another time during the final examinations period if the faculty member and student can agree on that time. Otherwise, they must be taken during the official period for postponed examinations. Room assignments for the postponed exams will be updated in early January 2023.

Room assignments for the postponed exams will be updated in early January 2023.
