The posted refund deadlines apply to courses that meet the entire semester/session. Classes that meet for only part of the session/semester have different refund deadlines. Tuition refunds are based on the difference between the amount paid and the amount due for credits remaining after courses are dropped. The block tuition rate may result in a smaller or no refund being available for dropping a course. Please contact the Registrar's Office for more information.

Fall 2019 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. Questions concerning room availability for exam changes should be directed to Dan Vainner (vainneda@gvsu.edu), Office of the Registrar.
