Major Religious Holy Days
The University respects the observance of major religious holy days by members of the campus community. Officers of administration and of instruction responsible for scheduling required academic activities or essential services are expected to avoid conflict with such holy days as much as possible.

The academic calendar is subject to change with appropriate notice.

Weekend, off-campus and some Petrocelli College of Continuing Studies courses may follow a different schedule. Graduate courses in the MAS, MSA, and MSHS courses follow SAS course schedules. BAIS courses follow those schedules as well if they are administered by the School of Administrative Science. Otherwise BAIS courses follow Online Programs schedules.
