Days of the Week Meeting Distribution for Spring
The one-day shortage of Fridays in the spring is made up with the one-day overage of Wednesdays. If a class meets only on Friday (three-hour class), then it is the instructor’s responsibility to make up the 150 minute deficit via an online or other instructional method outside of the classroom.
