*Close of day is defined as including late afternoon and evening classes.

It is the policy of the University of Missouri-Columbia to respect the diversity of our students. The faculty is reminded that students might want to observe religious holidays and days of special commemoration and is encouraged to accommodate students who have a conflict with a class period, test or activity because of these obligations.

Calendar approved by the MU Faculty Council on April 21, 2016.
