NOTES

  • Classes will be held on Veterans Day, Friday, November 11, 2016.
  • The University, in scheduling classes on religious holidays and observances, intends that students observing those traditions be given ample opportunity to make up work. Faculty members who wish to observe religious holidays will arrange for another faculty member to meet their classes or for canceled classes to be rescheduled.
  • Please note that Summer classes in some schools and departments follow alternate schedules. For exact dates, check with the department offering the course.
  • The calendars for the Schools of Dental Medicine, Law, Medicine, Public Health, and Social Work are published separately and are distributed by those schools.
