Fall Semester Academic Calendar: Graduate and Professional Students

Posted by on Thursday, June 11, 2020 in .

Details regarding the academic calendars for individual graduate and professional schools—some of which are further tailored to programs’ unique curriculums—are available on the Office of the University Registrar website.

  • Orientation events for most programs will occur remotely prior to the start of classes. See school-specific info below for detailed information. 
  • The academic calendar for graduate Ph.D. programs will align with the undergraduate calendar. The calendar has these notable changes from previous years:
    • Classes will start on August 24 (two days earlier than planned).
    • In-person classes will end before Thanksgiving break, and remaining course content will be delivered via alternative platforms.
    • Breaks are eliminated to reduce travel and minimize risk of increased exposure to COVID-19.
    • Many professional degree programs will have these same or similar modifications but may vary based on the unique nature of each program (see school and college websites for these specifics).
