Academic Calendars

Graduate Academic Calendar

This academic calendar is utilized by all graduate programs with the exception of the MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing, Master of Occupational Therapy, Master of Occupational Therapy Bridge, MS Accounting, MS Applied Laboratory Science and Operations, MS Genetic Counseling, and MS Physician Assistant Studies programs. Academic calendars utilized by those graduate programs are listed separately in this section of the academic catalog, the external website, and on the Academics tab of the MyBayPath portal. The EdS/MS Education programs with a concentration in Administrator in Special Education follow the dates on this academic calendar with an exception of not offering coursework during the summer semester.

This academic calendar is based on two eight-week sessions running within each semester during the academic year; however, some graduate programs using this calendar may not offer coursework in eight-week sessions. In those cases, the add/drop deadline is considered the close of business on the date of the first class meeting and the withdrawal deadline is considered the close of business on the last business day prior to the course being 75% complete. Students are recommended to contact the Registrar’s Office if they have any questions about add/drop or withdrawal deadlines for their courses.

This academic calendar is accurate as of the time of publication, but is subject to change.
