The Archives holds print copies of final and other exams, primarily from FAS undergraduate courses, dating from 1836 to 2009. The collection also contains some examinations from the Law School, the School of Dental Medicine, the Graduate School of Business Administration, and the Lawrence Scientific School.
None of the exams held by the Archives are available online at this time; you must visit the Archives to request and view them. Use the List of examinations, 1836-2009 to find exams held by the Archives and to obtain Archives call numbers before your visit.
