Will the academic calendar be different in fall 2020 from other fall semesters?
While classes will begin as scheduled on Monday, Aug. 24, the academic calendar and course schedule will change this fall to accommodate course adjustments and enable an early end to the semester.
The last day of in-person instruction will be Nov. 25, 2020, one week earlier than the originally scheduled last day of classes for fall 2020. This will allow the College to close campus during Thanksgiving break and reduce the possibility of reinfection from Thanksgiving travel.
No in-person class meetings (including for hybrid courses) will take place after Nov. 25. Synchronous online class sessions will be held on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. All final exams will be held remotely beginning Dec. 2.
While the revised academic calendar calls for in-person instruction to end ahead of schedule, the College will hold classes on Labor Day (Sept. 7) and during Fall Break (Oct. 12-13), to ensure that students receive the full, state-required 15 weeks of instruction.
