School of Public Health Academic Calendar 2017–2018

NOTES:

  • SPH Final Exams are given during class hours.

  • SPH classes have classes requiring different contact hours ranging from 1 to 3 or more. Due to holidays which fall on Mondays, Monday classes may be extended or additional dates may be scheduled to ensure the required number of contact hours.

  • Students should contact faculty prior to taking time off, including religious holidays. Arrangements must be made for making up academic work missed. Per New York State Education Law, Section 224-a: "Any student in an institution of higher education who is unable, because of religious beliefs, to attend classes on particular day or days shall, because of such absence on the particular day or days, be excused from any examinations or any or work assignments." All missed work must be made up at the discretion of the faculty.
