Add/Drop and Withdraw Dates

The Paradigms courses follow the university's deadlines for full term and half term courses.


Finals for the Paradigms are entirely at the discretion of the instructor. The instructor may choose to use regularly scheduled class time for all or part of the evaluations. Alternatively, the instructor may choose an appropriate Finals Week slot or may schedule a Monday evening final the week after the last class of that Paradigm. If used, this last alternative will be listed in the Schedule of Classes. Some Paradigms do not have a final.
