ULethbridge, ULFA ratify agreement, university extends semester until May 5th

As classes resume at the University of Lethbridge following the ratification of the collective agreement between the university and the ULFA, the institution has released a plan for the remainder of the semester. The university will be extending classes until May 5th, offering a credit/no-credit option for course grades, and holding exams in class rather than during an exam week. Students have expressed mixed feelings about the extension of the semester and a perceived lack of communication during the decision-making process. While student union president Holly Kletke noted that the plan has “a sufficient amount of flexibility” for students in different situations, students shared their concerns about the increased cost of housing to accommodate the extended semester, the lack of a longer break between semesters, and the impact on students who are completing practicums and internships.
