Final Exams

Bellarmine offers a final exam schedule provided over three days.  This is designed to allow students appropriate focus and preparation time.
There are study strategies to prepare successfully and reduce anxiety regarding end-of-semester assessments.  Students should stay current with homework and reading and utilize past assignments and tests for review.  Preparation should begin now, so important information and practice becomes part of a review process that incorporates ideas, concepts, and content consistently, rather than last minute “cramming” of information.  Students should take the time now to organize notes and review materials.  Space out study time to include some review of previous material and schedule breaks as needed to maintain focus.

Bellarmine offers many academic support options, many through the Academic Center of Excellence, including a Math Lab, a Writing Lab, Theology support, and World Language support.  Additional tutoring and academic coaching are also available upon request.

The end-of-semester schedule is noted below.  Monday, January 23rd is our last Office Hours of the semester, and students are invited to campus between 8am-3pm to meet with teachers.  Office Hours is specially designed for faculty support prior to any final assessments.  Students are advised to take advantage of this opportunity to submit late or missing work (as directed or approved by the teacher), work on final projects or presentations, complete lab work, or seek guidance in final preparation.  As always, a good night's rest and nutritious breakfast allows students to be their best selves.
