The Academic Year

Typically, an academic year consists of the fall and spring semesters, each consisting of approximately 15 weeks plus finals week. The unit of instruction is the semester hour. Learn more about the Credit Hour Definition.

Final Exams

Finals at UNK will be scheduled Monday through Thursday during the last week of the semester.  The last week of fall and spring semesters is designated as Final Examination Week. Exams for summer or special session courses will be held on the last meeting day of the course.

Students should check the Final Exam schedule at the beginning of each semester. Finals exam days and times may vary from the regular class days/times.  If there are conflicts with the scheduled exams, students should contact their instructor early in the semester to resolve the conflict.
