ACADEMIC CALENDAR 2020-2021

The following is a proposed academic calendar for the fall of 2020. It is designed to reduce travel of students to and from campus, reflecting as closely as possible the original schedule for the fall. Most notable about this plan is the absence of a scheduled fall break, allowing for continuous instruction from Monday, August 24 to Tuesday, November 24. The final three days of instruction will occur after Thanksgiving, from Monday-Wednesday, November 30-December 2. Note that these three final days will reflect a Wednesday/Thursday/Friday class meeting schedule. These last instructional days will be followed by Reading Days (two weekdays and a weekend) and Final Exams during the week of December 7-11.
