Dear students,

As we approach the end of the semester and prepare for final exams, we are attaching some information and instructions we hope you will find beneficial during final exams.  The purpose of sending this information early is to allow you the opportunity to read and familiarize yourself with the instructions prior to your exam.


  • In order to accommodate students request to sit every other seat during final exams, our office has implemented a way to satisfy this request.  When you enter the exam room, you will notice a “red sticker” on certain tables/desks.  Please sit in the seats that have the red sticker.  The Summer 2014 Final Exam schedule indicates, by student last name, the classroom assignments for your final exam.  Please follow these instructions carefully.  The exam schedule can also be found on STETSON CONNECT on the Registrar’s Page.  Note:  For exams that are split up into different classrooms, there will be a sign posted on the classroom door indicating the last name that should be in that room.
  • Hand-writers will sit in the same room as the laptop takers, and earplugs will be provided.  Due to the low number of students handwriting their exams, we are asking that the first row in each classroom be reserved for hand-writers.
  • Please arrive at your assigned exam classroom thirty minutes prior to the start of the exam.  IT will be available to assist during the first fifteen minutes, and the proctor will use the remaining fifteen minutes for exam distribution and instructions.
  • To view the instructions that are read by the proctor on the day of the exam please click here.  (Please read in order to become familiar with the in-class exam process).
  • Your final exam number, regardless if you have an exam or not, will be emailed to you later today (Tuesday, July 22).  Please be on the lookout for that email and make sure you save it.
