Finals at Northwest have arrived. That means the Ranger Bookstore will be buying back used books, students will be completing the clearnace process and dead week will occur within residence halls.
Finals week is Dec. 9-16. Before students are eligible to take
final exams, they must be cleared of all fines and fees that they were charged during the semester. Clearance began Dec. 3 and will run
through Dec. 5.
“Students can check in books and return school items, such as sports and band equipment to the library,” Maggie Moran, director of Learning Resources, said.
Fines and fees are to be paid on the second floor of the McCormick Building in the Business
According to Jennifer Luna, accounts receivable clerk, there is an option so that students can pay their fines and fees online at northwestms.edu, by clicking on
myNWCC under outstanding fees. Although you can pay these fines online, students must make sure to stop by the business office to recieve a clearance slip.
Students must have clearance slips signed before they are allowed to take final exams.
Book buy-back will be held Dec.11-16 from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. According to Joel Boyles, director of Union Services, various books will be bought back.
This includes hardback books and books that are not being upgraded next semester. Books that have access codes will not be purchased.
A separate table will be set up in the bookstore for the books that
the Ranger Bookstore will not buy back.
Students who reside in residence halls will have dead week from Dec. 1-8, until final exams week. Dead week means:
• No open dorm
• No visitors (this means no one but residents of your residence hall may visit)
• No overnight guests
Quiet hours are enforced 24/7, so that each student can be focused on studying for final exams.
Residents must leave their dorms within 12 hours of their last exam and no later than 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 16.
Students who are
returning to the same rooms next semester need to make sure all
electronics are unplugged and all valuables are taken home.
Any items that could spoil or rot need to be thrown away and trash
needs to be thrown in the waste containers located outside of the
dorm. Also make sure that windows are locked and blinds are down,
turned open. Last, but not least, make sure to turn off all lights and
