Abstract: In this paper we give characteristic class formulae for all semicharacteristic classes of all compact, closed manifolds with finite fundamental groups. These invariants are identified with elements in certain odd $ L$-groups, and exactly which elements occur is specified. An appendix calculates the cohomology of the model groups needed. A second appendix determines the structure of the $ L$-groups needed.
