UW-Madison Mid-term Evening Exam Policy

The following sections provides information regarding the Mid-Term Evening Exam Policy.

What is the UW-Madison mid-term evening exam policy?


For detailed information about the UW-Madison mid-term evening exam policy, please refer to evening midterm exams in the UW-Madison policy library.  

Please note that the mid-term evening exam policy does not apply to final exams.  For more details about final exams, please refer to summary period for academic semester in the UW-Madison policy library.

Instructors of daytime courses who plan to give evening mid-term examinations must make a request to footnote/highlight this information on the course in the Course Guide so students will be aware of potential conflicts with evening courses or other commitments.  Whenever possible, the times and/or dates of evening examinations should also be footnoted.
  • Instructors who schedule evening examinations should make every possible effort to accommodate students with unavoidable (documented) conflicts.
  • Instructors are responsible for assuring that all students with conflicts between daytime courses with evening exams and evening courses are treated fairly and without penalty.
  • If a scheduling conflict exists between the evening examination of a daytime course and a regularly scheduled evening course, then the evening course takes precedence over the examination.
The Faculty Senate approved an amendment to this policy (available as Faculty Document 1585a, dated 5/11/01) to clarify instructor responsibilities regarding conflicts between evening classes and evening exam hours for daytime classes:

"It is the instructor's responsibility to assure that all students with conflicts between daytime courses with evening exams and evening courses are treated fairly and without penalty.  If a scheduling conflict exists between the evening exam of a daytime course and a regularly scheduled evening course, then the evening course takes precedence over the exam."

Questions regarding this policy can be directed to L&S Student Academic Affairs (608-262-0617) or to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
