Academic calendar 2020-21

The academic calendar is organized as follows:

what is an epidemic
  1. While the time for autumn remains similar to previous years, the spring and summer semesters will start on the day after Labor Day (8. The classes for spring 2021 will meet for the first time on January 11; in the summer semester on May 3.
  2. Each semester offers the optional possibility of immersive courses by dividing them into two consecutive blocks of equal length. This arrangement of A and B time frames gives faculties flexibility in developing curricula for specific programs and students in choosing coursework, although most programs are likely to adopt the more traditional full-time format.
  3. The early start of the spring semester enables the summer semester to start faster and enables students who enroll in summer courses (including those who concentrate their work in 'Summer A') to take part in internships, summer jobs, and other seasonal activities.
  4. The kick-off events traditionally take place after the spring semester in the last week of April, but earlier than usual.
