Students whose disability requires them to take examinations with accommodations must make arrangements with the Assistant Dean for Student Development. Which examination accommodations will be provided, if any, will be determined by Disability Services and communicated via letter to the Law School Student Development Office. The accommodations may include extra time, separate testing rooms or special software or equipment. (See also the general disability policy.)
The UNC School of Law policy for examination rescheduling is administered by the Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Student Development. Only second- and third-year law students who have examinations at conflicting times may self-schedule their make-up exams under the policy, and no exams may be rescheduled outside of the faculty approved policy that follows.
Examination rescheduling request forms will be available from the rack of materials in the Office of Student Affairs suite and online (). Law students who qualify to reschedule final examinations must complete the required form and return it to the Registrar.
Students are reminded that the Honor Code is in effect for the entire exam period. The Code prohibits asking for, or giving, any information between students about administered exams, including seemingly innocuous statements like the exam was "easy" or "hard."
If you have specific questions about your exam schedule or rescheduling policy, please see Dean John Kasprzak.
