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. Those refund deadlines can be found by using the searchable course schedule or by contacting the Registrar’s Office at (616) 331-3327 or email [email protected].

For any course, the credit/no credit deadline is the same as the 100% tuition refund deadline for that course.

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. The Tuition Refund Calculation page has additional information and examples. Please contact the Registrar's Office for more information.

Evening Classes: Final examinations for evening classes (those beginning 5:30 p.m. or later) will be held on the first regular meeting time during the final examination period. Note that classes which begin at 5:30 p.m. will begin their exams at 6:00 p.m.

Saturday Classes: Final examinations will be held during the regular meeting time.

Common Exams: Some courses with multiple sections hold common exams outside the above schedule. The instructor will announce the examination time in class.

Online Synchronous Classes: Use the above final exam schedule template. Instructors may choose to offer a longer exam window for synchronous online courses.

Online Asynchronous Classes: Final exams will be held within a 24-48 hour window to allow students to fit in the activity/assignment/exam around their other scheduled exams. For more information, see the Teaching FAQ page on the Office of the Provost site

Hybrid Classes: Hybrid sections do not automatically get a final exam scheduled. If the culminating experience for the course is an in-person, on campus final exam, instructors will work with their department and Registrar’s Office to schedule a day/time and room. Ideally, this will be done consulting the schedule on this page based on the first in-person class meeting day. There may be a few student conflicts and we encourage faculty to be flexible for these cases.
