*The following message is being distributed by UPEI Marketing and
Communications on behalf of the Office of the Vice-President Academic and
Research to faculty, staff and students.*


At a regular meeting of Senate on February 17, 2017, a motion was passed by
a majority vote to extend the number of teaching days in the current
semester (January–May 2017) due to recent and anticipated storm/ inclement
weather closures.

As a result, please note:

• Classes will now end on *Friday, April 7, 2017* (instead of April 4)
providing instructors with three (3) additional teaching days if needed:
April 5, 6, 7.
• Instructors have the option of using these additional teaching days or
not, but must communicate their plan for end of semester classes to their
students by email or through Moodle.
• The exam period will now take place from *Monday, April 10, 2017 to
Saturday, April 22, 2017 *(instead of April 7–21).  A final exam schedule
will be produced and distributed by *Friday, February 24, 2017*. (Note: No
examinations will be held during the period March 27–April 7, 2017,
inclusive, without the permission of the Chair and appropriate Dean.)
• Course grades for fourth-year students must be submitted to the
Registrar’s Office by noon on *Thursday, April 27, 2017*.  This is the last
day of the second semester.
• Course grades for third-, second-, and first-year students and part-time
students must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office by noon on *Thursday,
May 4, 2017*.
