WVU has adjusted its Spring 2021 academic calendar to incorporate two additional days free from classroom instruction and exams. 

At the request of Student Government Association and in consultation with Faculty Senate leadership, academic deans and the Office of the University Registrar, the Office of the Provost has made the following revisions to the Spring 2021 academic calendar:

  • There is now an additional non-instructional day on Tuesday, March 2. 

  • There is now a "prep day" on Monday, May 3, which was originally the first day of final exam week.

  • Final exams will now start a day later on Tuesday, May 4, and end on Saturday morning, May 8.

These calendar changes are in effect for all WVU campuses, with the exception of some Health Sciences programs and other professional programs due to clinical rotation requirements, accreditation standards and other concerns. At the start of the spring semester, students should contact their program coordinators or instructors for more information.

Faculty and students should note that these changes leave no excess instructional days in the calendar. If the University should have to close campus due to weather or other reason, instruction will be required to continue through remote learning.

Faculty and instructors will still be expected to submit final grades by noon on Monday, May 10, to allow for adequate processing time.
