This page provides information about the academic calendar for the current and next academic years. (This pertains only to the traditional, on-campus undergraduate program. Other students should consult their program director for schedule information about your program.)
These dates are subject to change. In general, we strive to fix the dates for a particular academic year (which starts with summer school in mid-May) no later than January 1. On rare occasions, events warrant making changes after this date. If such a late change creates a hardship for a student traveling at a distance, please contact the VPAA′s office for assistance at 724-847-6605, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Semester Timeline gives more detailed information for the upcoming semesters.
The Final Exam Schedule gives specific times for final exams for the upcoming academic year.
