The University of Kentucky announced changes to its academic calendar Thursday which include eliminating spring break, but WKU’s spring schedule hasn’t been decided.

When asked about UK’s decision in a meeting with the Herald, WKU President Tim Caboni said the spring academic calendar will come out “in the near future.”

WKU currently has a spring academic calendar listed on the registrar’s website, which includes a spring break.

In addition to the elimination of UK’s spring break, it also includes a later start date.

This story will be updated.
