LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 6, 2021) — Finals are quickly approaching and University of Kentucky students are putting their best academic foot forward to conclude the Fall 2021 semester. 

Get ready to ace your finals with these five tips.

1. Review your final exam schedule. Exams are scheduled based on the class meeting time and may be scheduled at a different time than when your class regularly meets.

2. Take advantage of Integrated Success Coaching for help with test-taking strategies and study tips. Don’t forget these free academic resources are also available.

3. Reserve a study room or stop by The Study and use their quiet space during reading days.

4. Remember to visit your professor’s office hours to have any last-minute questions answered.

5. Take a break from your studies with SAB’s Crunch Brunch from 8-11 p.m. Monday, Dec. 13.


The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
