COVID-19 Information

Spring 2021 evening midterm exam scheduling will function similarly to Fall 2020 with 50 or more optimum enrollment offered virtually/online, and 49 and below offered either as virtual/online or in-person. If your course has an optimum enrollment of 50 or more, no University Classroom will be scheduled. We will continue to operate on a reduced seating capacity across all instructional spaces on campus for courses with 49 or below optimum enrollment, if desired.


Requests will need to be submitted by Friday, November 23, 2020, to ensure this information is present in time for Spring 2021 early registration. The individual(s) submitting room request forms for evening exams will receive an email confirmation once their request has been processed.

Evening Midterm Exam Time Periods

The approved evening exam time periods are:

  • 1 1/2 Hour Exams: 6:30-8:00pm or 8:45-10:15pm
  • 2 Hour Exams: 6:30-8:30pm
  • All Other Exams must begin at 6:30pm

How to Submit Evening Midterm Exam Needs

Exam requests are submitted online via the Exam Needs Tool in MAUI Offerings Planner, in a manner similar to the Final Exam Needs submission process. Information on how to submit evening exam requests via the exam needs tool can be found here: Evening Midterm Exam Submission Instructions.

Those requests submitted early will have a better opportunity at securing their preferred dates and times. Only individuals with Offerings Planner access for your department will be able to submit evening midterm exam needs. This means that instructors will not be able to submit evening midterm exam needs unless they have Offerings Planner access.

Exam Policies

Policies regarding general examinations may be found on the Office of the Registrar's website.

Auditoria Seating Layouts

University classroom auditoria with an actual seating capacity of 100 or more have been outfitted with seat and row number identifications. Seating layout plans for these rooms are available online to assist faculty as they make their exam arrangements.


Please share this information with your faculty and staff. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Office of the Registrar.

Thank you!
