Academic Calendar 2020-2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a complete rethinking of the 2020-2021 academic calendar. Most notably, the primary move-in date for new students has been moved up one week to Aug. 14, 2020.
The fall semester adjustments are meant to leverage the First-Year Experience course for a fully immersive experience for new students while limiting the amount of virus exposure from travel during Thanksgiving break. While the calendar has been significantly amended, students will receive the same number of days of instruction.
Other notable changes include hosting classes on Labor Day (Sept. 7) and a one-day class recess (Oct. 9). The last day of in-person instruction is on Nov. 20, and there will be a week-long Thanksgiving break before beginning virtual instruction on Nov. 30.
