The University Council approved a change to the 2015-2016 academic calendar at its Sept. 22 meeting.
With the change, final grades for the spring semester will be due Sunday, May 15, at 5 p.m. instead of Monday, May 16.
The adjustment was made to make room for Maymester classes, which begin May 16. According to the Registrar’s Office, having the grades due one day earlier gives students enough time to know if they will be eligible for May classes. In some cases, certain students may be dismissed, and the change would allow these students to know before the beginning of the Maymester classes.
