The calendar includes one (1) preparation day and one (1) meeting day at the start of each academic term (Fall, Spring, Summer). Preparation days allow time for professors, librarians, and counselors to prepare for the upcoming term. Meeting days allow time for college-wide assemblies, campus and discipline-wide meetings, and staff/professional development activities.

There is a period at the start of each term for “no show reporting” to confirm enrolled students who do not show up for classes.

The calendar follows a typical 15-week Fall and Spring semester system, with two 7.5 week sessions within each termed as Half Term 1 (H1) and Term Week (TWK). The Summer semester is 12 weeks in length, also split into two 6-week Half Terms.

Final exams occur during the last 1-2 class sessions at the end of Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. There is a final preparation day after finals before grades are due.
