1. Determine the appropriate Meeting Pattern designator.
T* = meets TU, T, U, TW, TF, MT, MTUF, TWUF, MTU, MTF, MUF, TWU, TWF, TUF, TUS, or UF
W** = meets MWF, MW, M,W, F, MTWUF, MTWU, MTWF, MWUF, MTW, MWU, WUF, MU, MF, WU, or WF
2. Use the course start time to find the time range in the corresponding T* or W** row.
|Meeting Pattern||Examination Date/Day|
|T*||11:35 –12:30 pm||10:35 – 11:30 am||2:35 – 3:30 pm||9:35 – 10:30 am||1:35 -2:30 pm||9:40 am - 11:30 am|
|W**||10:35 – 11:30 am||12:35 – 1:30 pm||8:35 – 9:30 am||7:35 – 8:30 am||9:35 - 10:30 am||11:50 am - 1:40 pm|
|T*||12:35 – 1:30 pm||3:35 – 4:30 pm||7:35 – 8:30 am||6:00 – 7:30 am||8:35 - 9:30 am||2:00 pm - 3:50 pm|

Example: Class regularly meets MWF at 11:30 a.m. so the Meeting Pattern designator is W. 11:30 a.m. falls in the time range 10:35 - 11:30 a.m. so the final exam is Monday, Dec. 11, 11:50 a.m. - 1:40 p.m.
Example: Class regularly meets TU at 8:05 a.m. so the Meeting Pattern designator is T. 8:05 a.m. falls in the time range 7:35 - 8:30 a.m. so the final exam is Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2:00 - 3:50 p.m.
