Academic Policy for "Cancelled Class Sessions"

Any class sections(s) that are “cancelled” must be rescheduled on a “scheduled make-up date" in order to provide students with the number of hours of instruction required for the credits to be earned at the end of the Winter Session term. This requirement must be adhered to as per the State Education Department (SED).

In order to comply with SED requirements, "Make-Up" class sessions will be held at the same class time as the Tuesday-Friday class schedule.

Monday, Make Up date

Saturday, Make Up Dates

Mon., Jan. 7, 14

Sat., Jan.5, 12, 19

Faculty, instructors and graduate students must be prepared to schedule make-up session(s) for any class sessions that are cancelled during the scheduled dates provided.
It is the student’s responsibility to drop themselves from a waitlisted course. If a student is registered directly from the waitlist and the student does not drop the course by January 4th, the student is responsible for tuition resulting from the registration.
No petitions for exceptions to University policy and deadlines will be accepted for Winter Session courses.
