The Southeast Missouri State University Board of Regents today approved the five-year academic calendar for academic years 2018-2022.
The new calendar continues the structure of fall break coinciding with the week of Thanksgiving for all five planning years.
In February 2016, the Regents approved fall break and Thanksgiving break coinciding through 2021 when they approved the Five-Year Academic Calendar for 2017-2021. Today’s action extends that through 2022.
The approved Five-Year Academic Calendar for 2018-2022 is as follows and adds clarity on when University offices are closed versus no classes being in session.
