Deadlines for Calendar Year 2013

Please note:

College deadlines for some reports and forms vary, depending upon deadlines set by other University offices. The general rule for items that require the Dean’s approval is to submit them to the College office several days prior to the deadline in order to allow time for campus mail delivery by the due date.

Deadlines set by other University offices for reports and forms that do not require the Dean’s approval will be communicated to departments through campus mail and/or email announcements as they materialize. The College will make every effort to send email reminders to departments announcing upcoming deadlines.
