Is the term going to be extended into May?

The university is finalizing a schedule that will ensure the term ends by April 30.

Will exams be cancelled so students can make up class time?

The university is planning to ensure that all class time will be made up and an exam period will be adjusted accordingly. More information on the scheduling of classes will be available soon. For more information on exams, click here.

Are assignments going to be due as soon as we get back?

We expect there will be some leeway in terms of previous due dates for assignments because the schedule for the first term has been altered due to the Academic Amnesty Clause.

I made travel plans for the Holiday break or Reading Week and now I have classes. Will I be reimbursed for any flights or hotels I have already booked?

The university understands that some students and families may be impacted changes to the Holiday Break and Reading Week.  Any students who have pre-booked family vacations, medical appointments or other concerns regarding the changes to the Holiday Break and Reading Week should speak to their professor to discuss arrangements for missed class time. The University wishes you a great trip.
