Academic Year & Term Dates
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.
- 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.
