The five undergraduate Claremont Colleges share a final exam schedule.  If a course includes a final exam, it must be held at the time specified below, with the following exceptions:

  • For graduating seniors in their final semester, instructors may omit the final examination or administer it during the last week of the semester, inclusive of Reading Days. 
  • Students who (a) have three exams in two days, or (b) have a conflict because of a common final that occurs at the same time as another final may make arrangements with an instructor to re-schedule one of their finals, without APC approval.

Any other exceptions require approval of the Academic Procedures Committee (APC).

To determine the exam time for a particular class, look up the class's regular meeting time on the grid below.  For example, if a class meets on Mondays and Wednesdays (MW) at 2:45 p.m. during the fall semester, the final exam will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 2:00 p.m. 

Key to abbreviations: M = Monday; T = Tuesday; W = Wednesday; R = Thursday; F = Friday.

*Common Finals

  • If you have a common final, your instructor will provide information about the day, time, and location for the final exam.
  • All Pomona lower-division language courses numbered 1-51 which have multiple sections have a common final except FREN044 and SPAN044. Pomona lower-division language common finals are marked with an asterisk (*) on the grid above. Final exams for FREN044 and SPAN044 follow the regular final examination schedule.
  • Faculty members teaching two or more sections of the same course may request a common final by contacting the Office of the Registrar.  Priority goes to faculty members teaching three or more sections of the same course.
  • Regularly scheduled final exams have priority over common final exams. Faculty using a common final option must accommodate students who have conflicts with regularly scheduled finals at another mutually agreeable time.
