How to prepare for finals

December 13, 2010
By Kayla Green

When preparing for finals, there are a few things to consider. Here are some common questions and answers regarding finals week.

When are final exams?

Fall final exams are scheduled for Dec. 13-17.

How do I know when my finals are?

You can find the finals schedule, as well as other information, by visiting the Registrar's Office website. Browse the schedule by time and day for when the course is taught and the exam day and time will be listed accordingly.

Also, be sure to check with your professor as he or she may have changed the date, time, or room.

How late is Morgan Library open during finals week?

The Morgan Library will have extended hours Nov. 28 through Dec. 16.

Finals Week hours are as follows:

  • Dec. 12 10 a.m.-3 a.m.
  • Dec. 13-15 6:30 a.m.-3 a.m.
  • Dec. 16 6:30 a.m.-2 a.m.
  • Dec. 17 6:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

Visit the Morgan Library for a full list of Morgan's extended hours.

Where can I get extra tutoring help?

Unfortunately, the TILT tutoring will be closed during the week of finals since most tutors are students as well. However, TILT does offer test-taking strategies workshops several times each semester- including the week prior to finals.

TILT's Great Hall and private study rooms will be open Sunday-Thursday until midnight during finals week.

What if I have three (or more) finals in one day?

According to the Registrar:

"If a student has three or more final examinations (not classes) scheduled for the same day or if conflicts of examination times occur, the student may negotiate a time change with the instructors involved. If the parties involved cannot find a mutually agreeable time, the Registrar's Office indicates which courses must be changed. Note: The Registrar’s Office must be notified at least one week prior to Final Examination Week to allow instructors time to make appropriate accommodations."

Is the Wellness Zone offering any services during finals week?

Yes, the Wellness Zone will be collaborating with ASAP to bring you goodie bags filled with stress relievers on the plaza. They will also be offering free massages across from the SLiCE office.

For additional information, please contact Jennifer Nival at (970) 491-1744.

When is the late night breakfast?

The Lory Student Center will be offering the late night breakfast on Dec. 12 from 9 p.m. until midnight. They will be serving breakfast burritos and offering various activities to keep your mind off finals...briefly.

Where can I purchase a blue book?

Good question! Blue books can be bought at the CSU Bookstore during normal business hours. The small books are 21 cents and the large books are 43 cents.
