Changes to Penn's Academic Calendar - September 25 & October 9

There will be no class on September 25.

Due to anticipated logistical and transportation issues related to the historic visit of Pope Francis to Philadelphia, the University will suspend normal operations on Friday, September 25. As a result, classes and University-sponsored events are cancelled on this date.

The Deadline to Drop Classes is Extended to Friday October 9.

The drop deadline for fall semester classes has been extended to Friday, October 9. Due to the combined effects of the Jewish holidays and the Papal Visit, instructors may not be able to schedule and return work early enough in the semester to allow students to make an informed decision about continuing in a class in time for the existing earlier drop deadline. Please note that, although the new deadline occurs during Fall Break, Penn InTouch will be available to process drop requests.
