    Collocation: Timetable + out?

    I'd like to ask if the following collocations are idiomatic in English. Thanks When I want to say that the timetable has finally 'arrived' or become available for me, a student, can I simply say - the timetable is out? is released? Any other common collocations? Thanks a lot

    Yes, "The timetable is out" is fine and means "The timetable has been published". You might hear "The timetable is up" if it has been posted on a public noticeboard. If it has been sent to you direct, you can say "The timetable is here".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
