Please keep in mind that your academic advisor does not have access to your instructors’ gradebooks and does not receive your grades directly from your professors. Under federal regulations, advisors may not discuss a student’s grades directly with a parent. If your grade for a particular course is not posted, or if you think there has been an error in calculating your final grade, you will need to contact your instructor directly.
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.
“Get to know your advisor. Don’t just make an appointment if you have a problem. Even if you feel like you have things under control, stop in and talk to her. My advisor is really helpful with a lot more things than just picking classes.” – Freshman UST student
“Everyone who goes to college should know why they’re doing it. Is it what your parents expect? Are you following your sister’s footsteps? Do you think it will help you get a better job? I went to a workshop on developing a resume and cover letter, and the presenter said, “What is your why?” and that stuck with me. What is your purpose?” – Sophomore Political Science major
