Dear University Students,
I write to you today about two issues: blended calendar and final exams.
It has come to our attention that the revised blended calendar (sent on Jan. 15) is unbalanced in favor of odd IDs on campus in FA 20: 22 days for odd IDs versus only 14 for even IDs. This is not equitable, especially since evens wouldn’t have another Friday on campus due to Kashmir Day. The revised blended calendar (below) balances the on-campus experience much better: 17 days for odd and 19 days for even.

Student Services 
As you are back on campus, please note that all student services will be provided online. An entrance in the N-Block administrative offices will be allowed only by invitation. This is to observe health and safety measures.

Final Exams

  • As you know, all undergraduate final exams are online and open book/open note (except oral exams can be closed book/note).
  • Postgraduate exams can be online or in person, but keep in mind that some faculty and some students have been given permission to work/study fully online due to medical/family concerns.
We will let you know if anything changes per government or HEC policy. Keep up the good work!
Dr. Trimble
Vice Rector for Academic Affairs
