Action Required: Final Exams and Learning Location


*Published on December 2, 2020

Dear Students,  

As you approach finals and make decisions about the next academic term, Northeastern has two resources available in the Student Hub to help guide you.  

View Your Final Exams Schedule  

Your final exams schedule will be available on December 4 in the Student Hub under the Classes tab. Visit this article for more details on the final exams schedule in the Hub and how to find them. All exams are remote this term. For any questions about exams and scheduling, please contact your instructor(s).   

Set Your Learning Location  

Help Northeastern to support your learning in future terms by keeping the university updated on your plans. Indicate your learning location for the Winter/Spring 2021 term in the Student Hub. Beginning December 2 when you visit the Student Hub at, you’ll find a module that asks you to set your Learning Location Status for the Winter/Spring 2021 term. You may choose one of two options:  

  • Option One: I want the option to interact with the university community in-person, in the classroom or on campus. Select this option if you are living on-campus or off-campus and want to attend classes in-person. 
  • Option Two: I will only interact with the university community remotely. Select this option if you cannot attend classes in-person in the spring, if you plan to take classes from your home location and do not plan to live on or near campus, or if you are enrolled in an online-only academic program. 

Sharing this information will help the university provide the maximum number of classroom spaces for students who wish to attend classes in-person. Students interacting in-person will be able to use the Dynamic Scheduling Tool in the Student Hub to select their weekly preferences for remote or in-class learning. Students interacting remotely will not receive in-person classroom assignments.  

Please remember to set your learning location status by December 31, 2020. If plans change, you may update your status in the Student Hub. Note that your learning location status does not update the COVID-19 Test Scheduler. As you leave and return to the Boston campus, please visit the Test Scheduler and update your status to Primarily In Person or Primarily Remote. Thank you for helping Northeastern plan for the upcoming term, and thanks for all you are doing to keep yourself—and our community—healthy and safe.
