ACADEMIC CALENDAR UPDATE

Please note, there have been several changes made to the Academic Calendar since it was originally printed in our Fall 2013 Catalog. One of the most significant changes is the first day of Spring Semester will now be TUESDAY, JANUARY 7, 2014. This change was made to accommodate Faculty In-Service.  In 2014, New Year's Day will fall on a Wednesday.  Therefore, Jan. 2,3 & 6 will be used as faculty in-service, advising days and class preparation.

Please remember, for the most updated schedules, you can always check online at http://www.virginiawestern.edu/academics/calendar.php
