2017-2018 Official Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendar is the official College calendar that outlines semester start and end dates, official holidays, college breaks, mid-semester dates, quarter dates, student teaching timelines, study days, final exam periods, and commencement dates. The Official Academic Calendar is determined by the Campus Calendar Committee, chaired by the President's Office. The calendars are approved by the Faculty Senate prior to publication.
