Graduate and Seminary Academic Calendar


The graduate and the seminary 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. Graduate students typically use the summer term as an integral part of their program.
