Reminder: Changes to co-curricular days dates come into effect this fall.

Last June, Senate approved revisions to the Senate Policy on Sessional Dates and the Scheduling of Examinations, which included the following changes:

  • A reduction in the number of co-curricular weekdays from four to three in the Fall term;
  • The scheduling of those days after a minimum of six (6) full weeks of instruction have been completed;
  • Observing the co-curricular days on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (and the weekend following) to help balance the Fall term, which will begin on the Wednesday following Labour Day.

This is a reminder that the changes to the sessional dates take effect in the upcoming FW2012-2013 academic year, and will be observed on:

Wednesday                   Oct. 31, 2012

Thursday                       Nov. 1, 2012

Friday                             Nov. 2, 2012

Saturday                        Nov. 3, 2012

Sunday                          Nov. 4, 2012

A full list of the sessional dates for FW 2012-13 can be found on the Registrar’s Office website.
