Technology Services, No Change Periods

This page has information about the Technology Services No Change period, including the dates of future No Change periods.

Technology Services observes the No Change period to minimize the risk of service interruptions during the critical period leading up to and during final exams. During this window even minor disruptions to the network and other services can have a significant impact on students' preparation for and completion of final exams.

During the No Change period, Technology Services will not implement any change that may affect, directly or indirectly, any production service, function, or activity. Emergency maintenance and patches may still be applied during the no-change period if they are necessary to maintain the stability or security of a network, service, function, or activity.

The CMB schedules No Change Periods (NCPs) for all terms of instruction, beginning at midnight on Reading Day and concluding at 23:59 on the last day of final exams (Fall and Summer), or on the day grades are conferred (Spring).
