Important Dates

The academic year is comprised of three sessions:  Fall, Winter, and Summer. The Fall Session runs from September through December; the Winter Session from January through April; and the Summer Session from May through August. The University closes for approximately two weeks, between the Fall and Winter Sessions, for the Winter Break.
