The Honor Code at Davidson College allows the college to administer final exams in a way that gives students more flexibility in their exam schedule.

Traditionally, the Registrar's Office, in conjunction with the Honor Council and the Student Government Association, coordinate the self-scheduled exam process. The changes to the 2020-2021 school year brought about by our COVID-19 response have necessitated a revised final exam process.

Faculty may still elect to give final exams, but how the exam is offered will be at their discretion.
