the fall 2008 and spring 2009 Final Exam Schedule was distributed by Crammer
for discussion of the Common Exam schedule.

avoid overlapping exam schedules. Once

conflicts with 5:00 pm classes. Gibson noted the four possible solutions
discussed at the October 15th meeting as follows: 1) educate
departments on the examination schedule referring to it as class scheduling is
done, 2) request that Banner set up class schedules in order to avoid conflicts
when possible, 3) move common examination schedules to a 7:30-10:00 time period
instead of the current 5:00-7:30, and 4) change common examination schedules to
a Saturday schedule.
