End of Semester Tips

15toFinishDear Student, 


Ensure a successful end to your semester with good preparation for finals. 


Reading Days are May 2 - 3 (no exams or classes) and finals are May 4 - 10. RU Ready?    


If you haven’t already done so, review, check for any exam conflicts, and familiarize yourself with final exam policies.  


Maximize your preparation for finals and make sure you successfully complete each class by attending office hours with your professor and checking out academic support resources


If you need a place to study or access to computers and printing services on campus, be sure to check out the libraries and computer labs. 


May 3 is the last day to withdraw completely for the semester. Grades of “W” will be posted to your transcript.  Remember, withdrawing may impact financial aid and progress towards your degree. Before withdrawing, be sure to review the checklist for considerations and points of contact for questions. 

If there have been extenuating personal circumstances impacting your academic performance, visit the Office of the Dean of Students – Student Support for guidance and support.   


Graduating seniors, be sure to read all about Commencement, including how to have your name listed for your diploma and ensuring that your mailing address is accurate! Also, remember to complete the Rutgers Post-Graduation Survey. This survey helps us to know about the success of our Rutgers graduates. By completing the survey, you have a chance to win your choice of Apple Air Pods or a $100 Amazon gift card!  


Best wishes finishing up the semester.  Remember, we are here to help.
