Changes to Fall 2020 Academic Calendar

Changes to Fall 2020 Academic Calendar

The health and safety of Georgia College students, faculty, and staff is of the utmost concern for the university. Out of an abundance of caution, and due to continued concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgia College will amend the fall semester academic calendar.

Fall classes will begin Wednesday, Aug. 12, instead of the originally scheduled date of Monday, August 17. Fall break, originally set for Oct. 12-13, has been removed from the calendar.  The last day of classes will be Tuesday, Nov. 24.  Final exams will begin Tuesday, Dec. 1, after the Thanksgiving break and will take place online.  The full revised academic calendar is available here, and the final exam schedule here.

The goal of these changes is to ensure learning continues while limiting the potential spread of COVID-19 by reducing travel to and from campus.

This new calendar has been reviewed and approved by the University System of Georgia and is supported and endorsed by the Georgia College academic administration.

More details on the university housing plan and move-in date procedures will be shared as soon as possible. I truly appreciate your continued support as we continue to prepare for a face-to-face, in-person fall semester.
