Spring break has been removed from the Florida Tech spring 2021 academic calendar in response to COVID-19.
An explanation for the change and revised academic calendar were sent out to the Florida Tech community in a Sept. 25 email on behalf of Marco Carvalho, executive vice president and provost at Florida Tech.
The email states that the removal of spring break “will promote community health by reducing spring travel while also maximizing instructional time.”
The shift has also affected the date of graduation for spring 2021, which will now take place on May 1. While fall commencement exercises have been moved online, it has not been announced if the spring ceremony will take place virtually or in-person.
Adjusted dates in the academic calendar:
Last day of classes – April 21
Study days – April 22-23
Final Exams – April 26-30
Commencement – May 1
