RE:                         Academic Calendar Change -- Spring 2009                

There appears significant confusion regarding the change to the 2008-2009 Academic Calendar that was announced on Sunday, March 2, 2008 in an email to the University Community.

The calendar change approved affects Spring Semester 2009 not the current Spring 2008 Semester. 

Spring 2008 Commencement is Sunday, May 18, 2008no change. 

Spring 2009 Commencement is Sunday, May 17, 2009 - changed

As a result of the new Commencement date in Spring 2009, the entire Spring Semester 2009 dates are changed. 

Please refer to the calendar below for specific dates for Spring Semester 2009 or go to the link below.

Thank you.
