A note about travel and final exams: Final exam dates will not be altered to accommodate travel plans. Case Western Reserve recognizes many students will base their plans for moving out and traveling home for winter break based on the dates of their final exams. Before finalizing plans (e.g. purchasing a flight) students should be sure to consult their course syllabi and the final exam schedule in SIS.
