Ramadan Exam Support Request

The Mines Testing Center (MTC) is offering EXAM support to students observing Ramadan:   

  • Ramadan is expected to begin on April 13th and end on May 12th, and Eid al Fitr is expected to be celebrated on the 12th or 13th. Observation of the start and end dates may vary by one day depending on different locations and on different schools of thought within the Islamic tradition (When is Ramadan 2021). This will overlap with the last weeks of the Spring 2021 semester and final exams.
  • Only exams regularly scheduled, including final examinations, for the afternoon (e.g., after 12:01 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.) during Ramadan and Eid al Fitr will be adjusted and  administered by the Mines Testing Center (MTC) per student’s request.
  • In the event that a student has two or more exams during a given day that are affected; the class with the lower enrolment must yield to a reschedule, likely moving the exam to the next evening or the evening prior.
  • Students may request to take their exam at 9 p.m. on the same day as the regularly scheduled exam.
