Academic Calendar

To accommodate planning, we work hard to provide the academic calendar over a year in advance for our students, staff and faculty. The College Catalog is updated annually and contains the Academic Calendars for the current and future academic year. For the complete academic calendar, you should refer to the appropriate Catalog. The dates listed below are a snapshot and do not include every date in the academic calendar.
