In the Know: Final Exams

Final exams for the Spring 2018 semester will be administered on May 17 and 18 and May 21 – 24. Students should confirm their exam schedules with their instructors.

UD students have access to several late-night study locations during Reading Days and throughout the final exam period, include Daugherty Hall, Kent Dining Hall, Morris Library and the Morris Library Commons.

Helpful Hints: Finish in Four

Data collected using the new Blue Hen Success Collaborative system reveal that students who complete at least 30 credits during their first year in college are significantly more likely to graduate in four years. Talk with your advisor about developing an academic plan that includes both the correct number and the appropriate type of credits needed for making progress toward degree completion. You may want to consider taking a course during the summer if you need additional credits.
