Current 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.
NOTE: The approved calendars were revised in August 2014 to accomodate Rosh Hashanah dates as authorized by an August 11, 2014 campus memo from the President's Office.
SUNY Cortland has established standard exam times to allow for two hour exams during the final exam period. The standard final exam period is used by students and instructors who are attempting to determine exam times prior to the exam period. Final examination policies and requirements may be viewed in the College Handbook, part four.
Faculty members can learn more about requesting alternate exam times.

Religious Observance and Class Attendance
The campus calendar provides for some specific times of religious observance, but is not an exhaustive representation of religious observances. New York State Education Law provides additional guidance and outlines additional obligations regarding religious observances.
