Students are expected to stay abreast with important University and CEHD specific dates and deadlines.

Failure to adhere to important dates and deadlines could result in missed opportunities, penalties, and delayed action. Students should plan accordingly to submit academic actions, such as appeals and exceptions, applications and forms, and incomplete assignments in advance of stated deadlines in order to allow sufficient time for processing.
