The Academic Calendar is created and maintained by the Registrar, with oversight from the Academic Calendar Committee and formal approval as outlined below. Each year’s calendar contains dates and deadlines relative to registration (add, drop, withdraw), term begin and end, second-admit and graduation applications, roster confirmation, and grading (mid-term and final); the academic year includes fall, spring, and summer.
The Academic Calendar for the next academic year is approved no later than December of the preceding year. The approval process is as follows:
- The Academic Calendar Committee reviews and submits the final draft copy to Cabinet.
- Cabinet reviews and approves and forwards to Instructional Coordination Council (ICC) or returns to Academic Calendar Committee for correction.
- Instructional Coordination Council (ICC) reviews and approves or returns to Academic Calendar Committee for correction.
Once approved by ICC, the Academic Calendar is considered final and ready for publication.
