The December 2017 Final Exam Timetable has been posted! Final exams in Fall term (F) courses and term tests in some full year (Y) courses will be held from December 9 to 20. Got a conflict? Please report it to our office by December 1 and we'll help you resolve it.   

Assessing your academic progress 

It's hard to believe that we're already past the halfway point of the fall term. Now is a good time to assess the progress in your courses. Are you keeping up with your school work so far? How did you do on your first few tests, quizzes, and assignments? If you're having any difficulties or concerns at all, make an appointment at your college registrar's office to talk things over with an advisor. Take note that November 6 is the deadline to drop fall term (F) courses without academic penalty. November 6 is also the deadline to add or remove the option to take an F-course to be assessed as CR/NCR.
