We will begin the semester on August 17, 10 days earlier than the originally scheduled start date for fall 2020. Classes will run for fourteen weeks, from August 17 through November 20. We will eliminate October Fall Break, and students will not return to campus after Thanksgiving break. The fall semester will be completed with a week of remote finals from November 30 through December 4. These changes allow us more days to hold classes and events outside, and reduce the round trips students have to make to campus. Based on all we know right now, we expect that students will return to campus for spring semester as scheduled but will maintain flexibility and adaptability to meet the changes and challenges presented by COVID-19.
The academic calendar dates are as follows:
- Aug. 17: Classes Start
- Nov. 20: Classes End
- Nov. 21: Residence Halls Close
- Nov. 23 - 27: Thanksgiving Break
- Nov. 30 - Dec. 4: Remote Final Examination Period
- Dec. 4: Semester Ends
