Registrar's Notes

December 14, 2009

Finals, grades, end of the semester

The final exam schedule can be found on http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/finalexam200904.html. Again, all finals are held in the regular classroom unless a change has been made with this office.

Grades are due Tuesday, Dec 22 at noon. We will close the grading system at noon to begin processing grades. I expect that they will be available for student viewing by late afternoon or early evening.

End of the semester, wrap-up information can be found on http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/faculty-staff/instructors/wrapup200904.html.
