CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Because of campus policy and changes in the campus calendar, the first day of class – Wednesday, Aug. 22 – will be treated as if it were a Monday.

Beginning on Thursday, Aug. 23, classes will meet as scheduled in the Timetable of Classes.

UIUC Senate Policy requires all class days to meet a minimum of 14 times during a semester. The Labor Day holiday, along with the addition of a full week fall break, reduces the number of Monday class meeting days to 13, necessitating the schedule change.
