2020-2021 academic year

Spring 2021 semester updates

Due to COVID-19, Spring 2021 semester will begin one week later on Jan. 25, 2021 and will run continuously without a spring break observance. The University will be implementing four “Reading Days” and an additional “no instruction” day during the spring 2021 semester. These five days will replace spring break. Classes will not be in session on these days, although depending on certain course goals, some laboratory and studio classes will still be scheduled. More information on Spring semester reading days.

See the Spring 2021 calendar for more information.
