Spring Classes Begin 8 a.m. - Note: Northwestern Monday - Monday classes
Spring Classes begin 8 a.m.
Northwestern Monday: In the fall of 2019, President Schapiro and Provost Holloway announced changes to commencement, spring break and the start of the spring quarter: spring quarters will now routinely start on Tuesday, rather than Monday, to afford two full weekends of break.
Though spring quarters will begin on a Tuesday, the Monday class schedule will be in effect, a practice referred to as “Northwestern Monday.” Classes that usually meet only on Tuesdays will not meet during the first week of the term. This calendar applies to all quarter classes except those offered in the evening programs in the Kellogg School of Management and the School of Professional Studies (SPS).
