Dec. 15 finals rescheduled for Friday

Submitted by Communications and Marketing

Dear Faculty and Staff, 

We hope this note finds you safe. The weather event on Wednesday, Dec. 15, caused significant disruption to many final examination plans. If your course final exams were postponed, please see the updates below for the rescheduled times.  

Salina campus:
K-State Salina final exams have been postponed for the rest of the week due to continued complications from Wednesday’s events. Faculty will be reaching out to students by 5 p.m. today with information on how to complete course expectations.

Manhattan campus:
For final exams scheduled after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 15 — Any exam that was postponed due to weather on Dec. 15 will be rescheduled for Friday, Dec. 17, at the same location, but two hours earlier than originally scheduled, based on the Set-Examination Schedule, as listed below:

Room location should be the same and you will be notified if there is an update to the location based on conflicts with Friday exams. Check your KSIS Schedule for updates.

Students who have circumstances that make it impossible to attend the rescheduled examination should contact the instructor. We encourage faculty to exercise as much flexibility as possible.  

For final exams given from 2-3:50 p.m. Dec. 15: Some final examinations were in process during the weather event. We understand that students and faculty may have felt unsafe or anxious during the exam and some exams may have been cut short. In such instances, we ask faculty to use flexibility and take the testing situation into consideration when grading these final exams. For example, they could make the last question(s) extra credit and not penalize students for incomplete exams. 

Final grade submission: The final day to submit grades for fall 2021 remains Tuesday, Dec. 21, at 5 p.m. CDT.  

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Tanya González at tgonzale@k-state.edu. As usual, students with special needs should connect with their K-State faculty and the Student Access Center for accommodation.   

Again, we thank you for your continued leadership during yet another challenging moment in the fall 2021 semester.
