Postponement Requests for Fall 2014 Final Exams

Exam postponement requests may be submitted online now at: http://examreporter.law.nyu.edu/. The deadline to submit a postponement request is Monday, November 3, 2014. To make this request in Exam Reporter, click on “Postponements.” In the section titled “Request Postponement” select the class for which you seek a postponement. Then select the type or reason for the requested postponement. Finally, click on submit. You will need to submit a separate request for each exam you wish to postpone. Results of requests will be sent via the docket by November 24.

The guidelines for postponement of examinations may be found in the Academic Policies Guide.

Postponed exams will be scheduled on the first day on which no exams are scheduled, or the next available day of the following week if four consecutive exams within one calendar week (Monday through Friday). If rescheduling exams would create an additional conflict, they will be scheduled so as to avoid a conflict. Please note Evening/Morning means the exam begin at 6:00 pm in order to postpone an exam scheduled for the next morning.

Petitions to the Executive Committee will be entertained only in cases of unusually severe hardship.

Please note the following:

  • To preserve the anonymous nature of our grading system, students should not request postponements or any special arrangements from the instructor in a course.
  • The time allotted for an exam might change at the professor's instruction. Therefore, students should adhere to the time specified on the exam instruction sheet on the day the exam is taken.
  • Students cannot take an exam earlier than the scheduled exam date.
  • When you postpone an exam, the grade may show up as "IP." It will be changed when your actual grade is entered into the system.

Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

All students with disabilities who need accommodations must register with the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities to provide appropriate verification of their disabilities. Students who require special exam accommodations also must submit a  request for each of their exams via Examreporter. The deadline to submit a postponement request is Monday, November 3, 2014. If you have any further questions about postponement requests, contact the Office of Academic Services.
