Calendar, vacation dates and routings are tentative and subject to change at the discretion of the University. University policy is such that vacation dates are often confirmed with only a few days advance notice. Students must be flexible in making plans. Exams continue until the last day of the semester. Students making their own travel arrangements should verify dates with AIFS before finalizing reservations. Please note that the flight route may require connections in the U.S. or Europe.
