School of Health Professions (SOHP) / College of Nursing Academic Calendar 2019–2020

Notes

Students in clinical courses should check with their individual programs regarding specific clinical schedules and time off. All students in clinical courses will be expected to adhere to the holiday schedules of the clinical site to which they are assigned. Clinical students completing clerkship, fieldwork, practicum or other clinical assignments may have clinical obligations that extend throughout semester vacation periods but clinical training experiences are not permitted to take place between academic semesters.

Students should contact faculty before taking time off, including religious holidays. Arrangements must be made for making up academic work missed. Please refer to the Student Handbook regarding Religious Observances, New York State Education Law, Section 224-a.
