The last five days of each semester are set aside for final exams. It’s your responsibility to make sure you know when and where you’ll be taking your finals. Read on to find out everything you need to know about final exams.
It's time to show what you've learned
Also known as “dead week,” the week before finals is free of major or final exams, except for practical tests at the end of lab periods. And it’s not true that you won’t have to turn in assignments during free week. If your instructors have assigned paper projects well in advance, they may be due during this week. Make sure you plan ahead.
Finals for course sections that don’t meet during the last weeks of the term—for example, first eight-week classes—will be held during the last class meeting. All other finals will be given during the last five days of the term.
If you have an exam scheduling conflict, report to the division head of the academic unit to find out what to do.
Final exam week for December 2020 is Tuesday, December 15, through Friday, December 18.
