2020–2021 Calendar

Academic Calendar Modifications

In order to maximize safety with the least possible disruption, the undergraduate academic calendar will begin Fall Semester on August 24, 2020 (one week earlier than the original calendar), and end on November 24, 2020. There will be no midterm break, and the final exam period is scheduled (online) for November 30–December 4, 2020. SEBA and KSOE graduate and professional academic calendars will remain largely unchanged with possible modifications for courses that include undergraduate students.
