Academic Calendar Changes for Spring 2011
November 8, 2010: ATTENTION: Changes have been made to the spring Academic Calendar. A number of the dates at the end of the semester have been adjusted, including those for final exams and graduation. Please visit the Academic Calendar for specifics on changes that may or may not affect your schedule.
Belhaven University offers traditional, online, adult, and graduate programs and needs to keep similar semester lengths for all programs for consistency and quality of service. Federal and state regulations also require the same consistency.
"We wanted to be proactive and move these dates as quickly as possible, which would allow faculty, staff, parents, students, and graduates to adjust their second semester plans," commented Donna Weeks, from the Office of the Registrar. "The administration considered several options to meet these goals, and the adjustment of the traditional programs spring semester by one week seemed better than other options, such as an adjustment in late December."
Belhaven stands among the select Christian colleges and universities that offer a unique general core curriculum encouraging the development of a personal worldview. The university believes a Christian worldview is a key to preparing men and women academically and spiritually to serve Christ Jesus in their careers, in human relationships, and in the world of ideas.
Founded in 1883, Belhaven University now serves over 3,000 students from campuses in Jackson, Memphis, Orlando, Houston, and online, offering traditional undergraduate degrees, graduate and adult degree programs, and online degree programs.
