Texas Christian University Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. announced changes today to the university’s fall 2020 semester calendar to help protect the health and safety of the campus community. The semester will begin Aug. 17, a week earlier than originally planned, and end the on-campus portion of the semester Nov. 24. The final deadline for grade submissions, graduate student defenses and other project work will be Dec. 10.
“As an organization that employs and cares for so many, we must plan responsibly, deliberate with transparency, and make the best decisions for our future,” Chancellor Boschini said. “Our goal in altering the fall 2020 calendar is to reduce non-essential travel over the holidays and minimize time on campus during peak flu and cold season.
