Academic Calendar

University has three calendars: Academic, Events and Master. The Academic calendar helps students familiarize themselves with important dates in their academic year. The Events calendar is geared toward the community and our alumni so they know what events to expect on campus throughout the year. The Master calendar includes both academic dates and all events on campus.
