On March 11, 2020, President Garimella announced the cancellation of classes on March 16 and 17 to allow faculty additional time to finalize their preparations for remote instruction beginning on March 18. These changes have affected midterm exams in some classes, raising concerns that some students may not have enough graded work to make informed decisions prior to the deadline to withdraw from courses.

In response to these concerns, the University is moving the Spring 2020 withdraw deadline from Friday, March 27, to one week later on April 3. Information on the Registrar’s webpage will be updated as soon as possible, and students will be informed of the change via email and messaging in myUVM. Please communicate the new withdraw date to your faculty, student services staff, and academic advisors.
