As students prepare for online final exams, UNC Greensboro is offering a variety of virtual tech support and academic resources. 

Final exams will take place after Thanksgiving Break, from Nov. 30 through Dec. 5. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all exams have been moved online. 

From extended 6-TECH hours to tutoring and speaking consultation, UNCG is committed to helping students navigate what will be an exam week like never before.

Tech support 

6-TECH is offering extended hours during exam week. From Monday, Nov. 30, through Friday, Dec. 4, the 6-TECH team will be answering calls and available via chat from 7 a.m. until midnight. On Saturday, Dec. 5, students can reach 6-TECH from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
