* As a result of the adoption of the Common Calendar by PASSHE, the 2008-09 academic year was reduced by one week as compared to the 2007-08 academic year.  In order to have a full schedule of 14 Monday class days (excluding finals week) in the spring semester, the "missing Monday" class dates of January 23 and 24 were established.  Students should check their class syllabi and ask their faculty for details.
