COVID-19 - July 16 Update - Academic Schedule

Published: July 16, 2020.

Only 7 weeks until the start of our fall semester! Classes begin Monday, August 31. Here’s a look at the Fall 2020 Academic Calendar so you can plan accordingly.

August 31 - Full day of classes
September 7 - Labor Day: no classes
November 25 - Thanksgiving holiday recess begins: no classes
November 30 -  Classes resume online
December 12 -   Final day of classes
December 14-19 - Final exams
December 19, 20 - Commencement Weekend

As you will notice, there is no Fall Break this semester. It is another modification we made as we prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff during this COVID-19 global pandemic.

We’re asking that our students, faculty and staff work together in association as Lasallians to protect our entire community.

  • All individuals should follow IDPH and CDC safety practices.
  • All employees are expected to work remotely unless the task of the day necessitates their presence on campus. If they must come to campus, then they need to abide by our Phase 4 Return to Work Guidelines.
  • Employees that travel need to be aware of the current CDC guidance for travelers and follow the appropriate actions when you return.
