While it may seem early to be thinking about this, some of you are already looking at plane, train, or bus schedules for a trip back home or elsewhere at the end of the fall semester. Don’t buy your ticket yet! Wait until you know your final exam schedule. While some courses have papers, others have sit-down exams that can be scheduled up to the last day of finals, so you should wait until you have confirmed your course schedule before purchasing any tickets. You should not assume that you will be able to take your exam earlier than its scheduled time.
Course meeting days/times determine the exam period to which they are assigned. There are three exam periods a day for three hours each from December 12 at 7 p.m. through December 16 at 5 p.m.
