Academic Calendar

2021-22 Academic Calendar

Due to unusual circumstances — such as, but not limited to, natural disasters and health and safety concerns — the course schedule and nature of curriculum delivery, learning, and assessment may need to be altered. Notice of anticipated changes will be given in advance of implementation, whenever possible. Students should make note of this calendar when scheduling personal travel plans. Dates are subject to change.

It is recommended students do not book personal travel before 5 p.m. on the last scheduled day of each semester. This will ensure that personal travel arrangements do not interfere with possible changes to the academic calendar.
