Academic Calendars



The traditional undergraduate programs operate on a two-semester plus 12-week summer academic calendar. The academic year consists of an early fall semester that ends before the Christmas holidays and a spring semester that concludes in early May. Summer courses may be used to lighten the course load during the regular academic semesters, to enrich and broaden the educational experience or to accelerate the student’s progress toward graduation.

Degree completion programs operate on a two-semester system. The fall semester runs from July through December. The spring semester runs from January through June.
