what happens if finals are snowed out?

its finals week at my school and its snowing pretty hard. any of you guys have experiences with finals being canceled? it would'nt be fair to extend finals week, mad people already have flights home. does the school put the finals on blackboard? just trying to find out what to expect

My guess is that they wouldn't do that. If anything they'd compress finals week into a few days if any of the other days were snowed out. But I guess it depends on the school, I know mine wouldn't put it online, they'd just screw us and make us do more i na few days. Where is this?

I live practically half way to the North Pole, and classes barely get cancelled. It won't happen. If somehow it does, they will just make you write multiple exams on one day or compress the writing periods somehow.

Last year the city was under a snow and ice emergency where it was illegal to drive. We still had finals.

It depends if you university cancels class but your safest bet is to contact your professor to find out what to do.

I remember my professors said, if school is cancelled he will post up an exam on Blackboard in which we will have to email in our answers by a certain date.

'Cause I would, if I was a professor at any school but my alma mater, totally trust the student body to be an honorable lot.

That being said, I've only had like, two classes cancelled last year when we had an ice storm.

They'd more than likely just schedule another day for finals. Your winter break would probably be cut short.

We had something of the sort happen last year.

There's lots of things they could do, but unless you go to one of those lucky schools who actually cancels, I'd go ahead and prepare for finals with the rest of us. My hope for snow days has only led to disappointment.
