Grade Posting Deadlines

Grades for graduating students are due no later than 48 hours after the end of the exam, except for finals administered on Wednesday, when grades for graduating students will be due no later than 24 hours after the end of the exam.


Spring Semester 2021

Classes will begin on our published start date (Jan. 11), but with several adjustments to the academic calendar:

  • The first two weeks of classes (Jan. 11-15 and 18-22) will be offered online so that members of the university community have ample time to quarantine prior to any in-person sessions.
  • There will be no spring break. Instead, there will be two instructional breaks — on Tuesday, Feb. 9, and Wednesday, March 31 — where there will be no classes. .
  • SP 21 classes will end April 21 with a reading day on April 22, and final exams will take place April 23-29.
  • Commencement will take place May 9 in a format to be determined.
  • Summer term classes will begin May 12.
