Academic Calendar

Why limit yourself to a typical "semester" timeframe?  Most of our classes run in 8 week* "sessions,"  with special 6 week*  spring and summer "minimesters" and a 3 week "wintermester."  

And, with 11 start dates throughout the academic year, you can jump on in and get started on your degree or certificate in ANY session, any time of the year! (No need to start taking classes in late summer or early fall in Session 1.)

* Please note that some courses, like our day classes and Nursing program, require longer sessions. Please ask an advisor or see our course schedules for more details.
