End of Semester
No student may leave early at the close of either semester. Do not request—or have your parents request—an exception to this policy.
As some exams are scheduled for Thursday, students should confirm their exam schedules prior to making plans for leaving at the end of the semester. With the semester ending at approximately 1 p.m. on Thursday, it is recommended that flights not be booked until after 3 p.m.
Residence hall students will need to stay on campus the last Tuesday night of the semester prior to closing convocation on Wednesday. Students may leave after Wednesday closing convocation if they have finished their finals, officially checked out of their residence hall room, and completed all work responsibilities.
Residence hall students will need to stay on campus the last Thursday of the semester before Friday Commencement.
Students must properly check out of their residence hall room, and stay through Commencement and all work responsibilities. With the semester ending at approximately noon on Friday, it is recommended that flights not be booked until after 2 p.m.
