Overview of the Academic Calendar

The academic year continues year-round from September 1 through August 31. It is composed of fall, spring, and summer trimesters. Each trimester is composed of two modules. Generally, 3- unit courses are designed to fit within a module (7 sessions in length) or a trimester (14 sessions in length). The start and stop dates of module courses do not fall precisely at the start and stop dates of every other month, but the table approximates how the academic year is set.
