Assessment key dates & timetables

Official exam timetables for all La Trobe University campuses.

Examinations are defined as formal, invigilated (supervised) assessments.

Key dates for upcoming final assessment periods can be found on Exams and Results Page.

Official exam/Final Assessment timetables are published four weeks before the Semester 1 and 2 final assessment periods and at least one week before Terms and Supplementary/Special assessment periods.

Students are required to be available for the entire duration of the final assessment period. Exams may also be scheduled in the evening and on Saturdays, for which students need to be available.

Please check your timetable regularly leading up to the final assessment period as details may change.

If you can’t complete an online assessment from home

There are spaces available on campus to complete your online assessment. View the list of locations at your campus.

Assessment clashes

If your Subject Coordinator has scheduled an ‘in house’ assessment, which does not appear on the timetable but is at the same time as a scheduled assessment, you will need to contact your Subject Coordinator to request an alternate time for the ‘in house’ assessment.

If you cannot attend your scheduled assessment you can check if you are eligible to apply for an Alternative Assessment Schedule.
