*Policy on Classes during Thanksgiving
The university discourages professors from canceling class on the Wednesday before
Thanksgiving in order to fulfill the required amount of credit hours per semester.
On some occasions, a professor will offer makeup sessions or alternative assignments
to accommodate out-of-state students with immovable travel plans. Once your student
finalizes his or her class schedule, we encourage contacting his or her Wednesday
professors to determine their individual policies. It is recommended that
students attend class on this day.
