Install bathroom fan before drywall?

We're doing a complete renovation.
is it possible to install the fan and connect up vents before drywall goes up so that no cutting is needed after?
Do you just add the thickness of drywall and mount the fan 5/8 lower?

Yes. It's just like installing any electrical box.
