Academics and Research

The semester will begin on Aug. 17, 2020, which is a week earlier than originally scheduled. All classes, including final exams, will end by Thanksgiving. By ending the semester before Thanksgiving, we aim to minimize the spread of the virus, particularly as the flu season commences. To support this schedule, we will not have a fall break in 2020.
