Preparing for Finals Week: Making a Study Schedule
Manage your time over the last two weeks of the semester and during finals week with these time management grids>>. On each of the schedules for the two weeks prior to finals week, indicate:
- Class times
- Organization Times or Practices
- Meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
- Ideal Sleep
- Workout time
- “Personal Time”
- Study Blocks for assignments due before Finals Week
Once you've identified empty blocks of time, prioritize when to begin studying for finals. Repeat this process throughout the 2 Weeks before Finals Week Grid, the Week before Finals Week Grid, and Finals Week Grid as well.

Building your Four-Year Academic Plan
The Four-Year Plan is used to help first-year students in their UNV classes to plan for their academic progression throughout their coursework at Mercer. The Four-Year Plan allows students to outline their transfer credit, general education requirements, major and minor coursework, and pre-professional goals while recognizing what should be achieved each semester as they work toward graduation requirements.
