The summer session will consist of two, consecutive six-week sessions, and one twelve-week session that is the concatenation of the six-week sessions. The first session begins the second Monday after Spring Commencement, takes a recess for Memorial Day, and instruction ends with classes on Thursday of the sixth week. This provides 28 days for instruction. Friday of the sixth week is for final exams. The second six-week session begins the following Monday, takes a recess for July 4, and instruction ends with classes on Thursday of the sixth week. As with the first session, this provides 28 days for instruction and Friday of the sixth week is reserved for final exams.
In addition, there should be continued the current practice that allows a variety of alternative schedules for specialized classes serving students who specifically need them. Field programs involving extensive travel and intensive training workshops are good examples.
