Faculty, check your syllabi: Late changes to the finals calendar may impact spring planning

Faculty are strongly encouraged to cross-check their syllabi and plans for the spring 2021 semester with recent updates to the finals schedule, which were necessary due to late changes to the academic calendar.

The Office of Records & Registration had to alter the spring 2021 academic calendar in order to accommodate SUNY requirements for COVID-19 planning.

These changes are being implemented at a relatively late date before the semester, and may require faculty to revise syllabi and exam schedules closer to the beginning of classes than is typical.

Conflicts between the official finals schedule and individual course schedules may cause issues with grading and even degree conferral for students.

We thank faculty in advance for their time and understanding in reviewing their plans for spring, and apologize for any inconvenience these late changes may cause.
