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].

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.

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.

Hybrid Classes: All types of hybrid sections do not automatically get a final exam scheduled. If a final exam is desired, 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.
