Reading/Study Days

The academic calendar formally indicates the last day of classes. Faculty must not schedule any class meeting after the last official day of classes. University-sanctioned Study Days are incorporated into the university calendar in an effort to provide students with additional preparation time before final examinations. Study Days apply to 16-week courses, and do not apply to classes that meet on Saturday or in summer. Study days are not to be used, under any circumstances, as a date on which final papers are to be turned in, examinations are to be given, quizzes are to be scheduled, presentations are to be conducted, mandatory review sessions are to be held, or for any other course-related activities, other than office hours.

Students who have concerns about course-related activities being conducted during Study Days should first contact their instructor. Should the student continue to have concerns after communicating with the instructor, the student may contact the department chair.
