Term Dates & Academic Schedules

Term Dates and Academic Year

Calendar is a word that's used a lot around a college campus. Even your friends might ask you what's on your calendar. But if you're wondering about the first and last day of classes, when spring break is and the last day to withdraw from a course, then you need to check out terms dates and the academic year.

Term Dates shows the first and last day of classes for each semester. Some of our programs are a little different from the September through April scenario with extended practicums and field trips. In particular, fire and emergency services programs and apprenticeship programs.

The Academic Year, or schedule, includes much more than the first and last day of each semester, there are also a lot of other dates--such as holidays--listed. We've even included some of the key dates in this and the next academic years.

Notes:
  • The schedule and refund dates apply to most college programs that start in September. Please see the term dates for specific program start and end dates.
  • This schedule does not include apprenticeship programs, programs with major work experience or practicum components, and continuing education courses. See the apprenticeship intake schedule and the continuing education calendar for more details.
  • If you need more information, please check with registrar's office or your program head.
