Instructional and Calendar Days
The quarter’s instructional and calendar days are referenced in various policies. Instructional days are those days starting with the first day of the quarter on which the campus is open, and counting each day classes are held through the last class day of the quarter. Weekends and holidays when classes are not in session are not counted when calculating deadlines based on instructional days.
Some deadline dates are based on calendar days. For example, the last day to drop a class with a grade of ‘W’ is the 55th calendar day of the quarter. These deadline calculations include weekends and holidays.
