The academic calendar for the University is developed and maintained by the Registrar. The academic calendar is based upon the dates for graduation as designated by the President of the University. Included in the academic calendar are deadlines for course changes and withdrawals, dates for final examinations, holidays and breaks, and event dates. The academic calendar is set for the entire year, fall through summer semesters, and is published annually in the University Catalog.
The appropriate designee of the dean of each College shall arrange the class schedule each semester after consultation with the Department Chairs and Curriculum Committee within the appropriate College(s). A preliminary schedule is distributed to the faculty so that any possible conflicts can be identified and resolved prior to the preparation of the final schedule.
