To find your final exam time(s) on the schedule, first, locate the standard meeting time for your course. The date is displayed at the top of the column and the time for the final exam appears in the far left of the row.

For example:

  • Sam has Writing 110 on T/Th from 11:00-12:15. Therefore, Sam’s WRIT 110 final is on Thursday, December 13 from 8:30-11:00
  • Jamie has Leadership 101 on MWF from 12:00-12:50, therefore, Jamie’s final for LEAD 101 is on Wednesday, December 12 from 3:00-5:30

If your course time does not appear in any of the time slots (e.g., MWF 3:00-3:50 or MW 11:00-12:15) and is NOT COMM 101/HONR 111, your final will be in the “ALL OTHER TIMES” slot on Tuesday, December 11 from 3:00-5:30.
