4. Motion:

In academic years when a so-called ‘mid-semester' break is scheduled during the fall semester, the registrar shall designate that break to coincide with the federal "Columbus Day" holiday. The official registration/academic calendars of the University of New Hampshire should be determined in accordance with this policy, beginning with the academic year 2003-2004. In years when the calendar does not allow for a ‘mid-semester' break, this policy will not be applied.

5. Senate Action: passed unanimously on 2/25/02.

Chair's verification: Dan Reid on 5/2/02

Forwarded to: Provost David Hiley on 5/3/02
Forwarded to: Registrar Kathryn Forbes on 5/3/02
