Student and Staff Advisory: Semester 2 to begin on August 16, 2021

Dear Staff and Students,

The University has delayed the start of Semester 2, 2021 to allow Students, Schools, and Academic Staff to better prepare for the new semester.

Classes will now begin on August 16, 2021, and not August 9, 2021 as previously planned.

The decision was made  to allow time for the following:

  • Students to register;
  • The remaining grades are to be submitted by Schools and uploaded to Banner by Student Administrative Service (SAS)
  • Academic staff to better prepare for classes;
  • Support sections to better support Schools.

Also, the Semester 2 Study/Examination Weeks has been reduced from 3 weeks to 2 weeks to compensate for the above change.

I acknowledge and thank all staff and students for your hard work in Semester 1 and I wish you all the very best for Semester 2.

Thank you, Vinaka and Dhanyawad!

Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education)
