Members of the Campus Community,
After careful review, and with the support of the University registrar and the director of student financial aid, the 2020 Fall Semester will be amended due to the current pandemic. The semester will begin as planned on August 24, 2020. However, there will be no Fall Break or final exam week. The semester will officially end at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, November 24, 2020.
This updated semester end coincides with the originally-planned Thanksgiving break. Both the first half semester session and second half semester session have been condensed to seven weeks (the start and end dates of both have been adjusted) and will not include any specific final exam days. Faculty members will develop alternatives to the traditional final exam week.
