Study Days

Study Days

Study days are designated periods to act as a pause for students in an academic term, to reflect upon and catch up on their term's work to date and, as necessary, prepare for any upcoming assignments and assessments. The dates are published in the Calendar of Events and Academic Deadlines.

Examples of study days include the reading week during the winter term, as well as, the days in each term between the Formal Lecture Period and beginning of the Final Examination Period.

Except where classes are rescheduled as the result of a campus-wide emergency closure, no classes are to be held during study days. With the exception of the English Language Proficiency Examination, instructors are not permitted to administer, and students are not required to sit for examinations, tests, or lectures during study days.
