Final Exam Numbers

Office of the Registrar


Final exam numbers are produced once per semester towards the midpoint of each semester.  Each student will use his or her exam number for all of the semester's in-class final exams, anonymous papers, and final take-home exams.  Students will receive a new final exam number at the midpoint of the next semester.  You will be notified via e-mail when your new exam number is ready for viewing in Cardinal Station.  Cardinal Station will not contain a history of your final exam numbers. 

1L students receive separate numbers for their in-semester "training" exams.  Upper class students may receive a separate quiz number for an in-semester quiz.  These numbers should not be confused with the final exam number and should not be used as a substitute for the final exam number.  Once the final exam period begins, only the final exam number should be used.

As mentioned above, final exam numbers are now available on-line within Cardinal Station.  To view your current final exam number, please log-in to Cardinal Station and navigate to Student Self Service and then Student Center.  Within the Academics portion of the Student Center, you will see a drop-down menu (this is to the left of your course schedule).  Within this drop-down menu, select "View Term and Degree" and click on the navigation button .  This will bring you to the "My Rank" page.  You will see two tabs on this page.  The second tab reads "My Exam Number".  Please click on this tab to navigate to the exam number page.  Your exam number is displayed on this page.
