2015-2016 academic calendar proposed amendment Every fall calendar has only 6 Mondays in the first 7 weeks but 8 Mondays in the second 7 weeks. For courses that only meet for the first half of the fall semester, this shorts them by one Monday. We are proposing to amend this calendar (and all calendars from this point forward) to move the date for mid-semester from Friday to the following Monday (for fall semesters only), making that Monday part of the first 7 weeks instead of part of the second 7 weeks. This also means the last day to drop a class would move from a Friday to the following Monday in the fall only. About 15 courses each fall would benefit from this change, and so far, we can see no disadvantage.
