Academic Calendar

Notes:

Graduate and professional programs may follow their own calendars; check the website for each School or program. 

Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, the first two days of Passover and Good Friday are religious holidays that affect large numbers of University community members and that fall during the academic year. View the University’s policy regarding these and other holidays.

The University’s Three-Year Academic Calendar is subject to change. In the event that changes are made, the latest, most up-to-date version will be posted to the Almanac’s website.
