( Juries will still take place as usually scheduled)


The University Dead Week Policy:

As stated in the TTU Faculty Handbook, no examination or extensive assignments should be given during the week prior to final examinations except as follows

  1. Quizzes covering no more than one week's worth of new material.
  2. Major tests unanimously requested by the class.
  3. Approved final examinations.
  4. Evaluation in laboratories, independent study, or self-paced courses.
