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.


As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
