Fall 2018 Final Exam Schedule

Fall examination periods are scheduled on the basis of the first lecture of the week for the course. Courses not fitting this schedule will have examinations arranged by the instructor in consultation with the Dean's Office. Examinations will normally be held in the same rooms in which lectures are given. Take-home exams are due at the time scheduled for a final examination for the course in question.

For exam schedule conflicts such as three or more exams on the same day or back-to-back exams on two different campuses, students should contact their professors for possible alternate exam times. Questions about the examination policy should be directed to Dr. Suzeanne Benet (benets@gvsu.edu), Provost Office.
