Dear Members of the StFX community,
There was a special meeting of the University Senate last evening to address proposed changes to the University Calendar for the 2013 Winter Term.
Please note that the following changes to the 2013 Winter Term have now been approved:
- Classes are extended by one week. The last day of classes is now Friday April 12
- The examination period will be Monday April 15 to Wednesday April 24 inclusive. (The detailed Examination Schedule will be posted by end of day on Friday February 22nd).
- The last day for students to drop winter term courses has been extended to Monday March 11.
- Spring Convocation will remain as originally scheduled; Sunday May 5.
Since some students will likely already have made important plans or commitments based on the previously published schedule, it is hoped that those teaching and holding examinations will make every effort to try to accommodate students who legitimately need such accommodation.
Mary B. McGillivray,
PhD Academic Vice-President and Provost
