semester if a final examination is also given during the Final Examination Period. Instructors
are reminded that students who request accommodation for religious reasons are entitled to
that accommodation under New York State law. It is the responsibility of the student to plan
class schedules to avoid conflicts with Evening Midterm exams and regularly scheduled
classes, and to avoid conflicts with Final Exams. Final schedules may be found online
