Three (3) Year Academic Calendar
The Three (3) Year calendar provides important academic dates for the current academic year and the next three academic periods.
Special Term/Short Course
Special Term courses either start earlier or end later than traditional semester courses. Short courses are courses that do not meet for the entire semester. These courses have different add, drop and withdrawal deadlines and it is the responsibility of you, as the student, to be aware of these deadlines.

For the Fall and Spring semesters, current students will register according to earned credit hours. Earned credit hours do not include any courses for which you are currently registered and have not yet received a grade.
Final Exam Schedule
The Final Exam schedule helps students determine the day and time of their final exam for a specific semester. The final exam period will be determined by the first class meeting time for the week.
