Winter and Summer Session 2023

In 2023, New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday, therefore the University may still be closed on Jan. 2nd.

MLK Day is Monday, January 16th. This is an earlier holiday, and therefore it does make Winter Session shorter if the goal is to start Spring on the Wednesday following MLK. As a result of the dates and the potential weather situations, the Academic Calendar Committee recommended that all Winter Session courses be done in remote (likely asynchronous) fashion. Any synchronous remote classes may need to use Saturdays or 3.5- hour sessions to satisfy the academic integrity concerns for contact minutes, testing and final exams in these courses. 

NJ has declared a state holiday on the third Friday of June to commemorate Juneteenth and this is figured in Intersession II.
