Schedule

2017-2018 Exam/Final Deadline Groups

The fall 2017 Final Exam Period is Saturday, December 9 - Tuesday, December 20. The spring 2018 Final Exam Period is Thursday, May 3 - Saturday, May 12.

The Three-Hour Final Exam Schedule includes only courses that have requested a three-hour exam scheduled by the FAS Registrar's Office. Please note this schedule is subject to change. Students should contact course Instructional Staff for information regarding other final assessments.

Exam and Course Deadline Groups will begin appearing in the my.harvard course search in late-July and will continue to be added until early-September. Exam and Course Deadline Groups correspond to course meetings times and may change if the course's meeting time changes. 

No instructor has the authority to approve alternate times, dates, locations, or accommodations for an exam scheduled by the FAS Registrar’s Office. Special accommodations must be approved by the appropriate governing body or administrative office. Circumventing these procedures may jeopardize a student’s grade in the course.

Students with two FAS exams scheduled at the same date and time according to the schedule below will be contacted by the Registrar’s Office in November or April. The Registrar’s Office will resolve the conflict automatically by rescheduling one of the student’s two exams to a time within 24 hours of the original exam time. Any student who believes he/she has a conflict with an exam that is not listed on the Three-Hour Final Exam Schedule should contact the Registrar’s Office as soon as possible.

Information regarding taking an exam at a different date/time/location, or requesting special accommodations is available under Exam Policy, and students should contact one of the administrative offices with any additional questions:

  •  The Accessible Education Office (aeo@fas.harvard.edu) for accommodations related to a documented medical condition
  •  Registrar’s Office (exams@fas.harvard.edu) for conflicts with religious observance 
  •  The student’s Resident Dean of Freshmen (for freshmen), Allston Burr Assistant Dean (for upperclass students), or the Registrar’s Office (for graduate and cross-registered students) for all other requests
