How to use this Calendar

The Undergraduate Academic Calendar contains both Academic and Administrative sections for students and Faculty to reference. The calendar holds the most current information on programs and courses, as well as rules and regulations as reflected in the Academic Regulations & University Policies section.

The Academic Calendar is published once a year (usually in early February) with updates and corrections as needed throughout the year. The calendar takes effect May 1 (the beginning of the academic year).

The information contained with the course bank is also linked to the registration timetable.
