Fall 2020 Academic Calendar

The Kansas Board of Regents recently approved the following changes to the fall 2020 semester

Fall classes begin as planned on Monday, Aug. 17. We will move the two days of Fall Break to the beginning of Thanksgiving week, giving a full week off. All face-to-face classes will end on Friday, Nov. 20, and the residence halls will close Sunday, Nov. 22. After Thanksgiving, there will be one week of remote classes followed by one week of final exams delivered remotely. This approach is in alignment with other institutions in the Kansas Board of Regents system.

For ease of planning, please note these specific dates:

  • Aug. 17 — first day of fall classes
  • Nov. 20 — last day of on-campus classes
  • Nov. 22 — residence halls close for winter break
  • Nov. 23-27 — no classes for Thanksgiving break
  • Nov. 30 – Dec. 4 — last week of class instruction, delivered remotely
  • Dec. 7-11 — Finals Week, delivered remotely
