This year, Autumn Quarter finals and exams will officially conclude at 5:00 PM on Friday, December 8th, but some students will finish exams earlier that week. The Residence Halls will close at noon on Saturday, December 9th.
A generic Finals schedule is provided through the Registrar’s website at the beginning of each academic year, but students should confer with their professors and syllabi each quarter before making travel arrangements. Students should not make travel arrangements that conflict with final exams. Students who must make reservations before their exam schedule is available to them should make reservations for the Saturday at the end of exam week.
The first day of classes for Winter Quarter is Wednesday, January 3, 2018, but the Residence Halls open on Tuesday, January 2nd for all students. Travel arrangements for the return to campus should not conflict with attendance of the first class of the quarter. In many cases, attendance at the first class is required to confirm enrollment.
