Academic Calendar

The following academic calendar is subject to change based on programmatic needs.

In terms of your daily schedule, you should plan to be in class generally from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Realistically, your schedule will likely be approximately 24-26 hours per week. We ask for this larger range because schedules can vary based on the week and lecturer availability, and sometimes lectures need to be changed.

As the curriculum is highly integrated and focused upon in-person student participation, please try to schedule planned personal appointments in the evenings and on the weekends to the extent possible. If you must be absent due to emergent illness to yourself or emergent illness/death of an immediate family member (spouse, child, parent, grandparent, sibling), please contact the program as soon as practicable so as to inform faculty who need to know and maintain absence records. Each year, we field inquiries regarding planned weddings, family vacations/gatherings, and other similar occasions. Please note that such occasions are not automatically excused absences, and missed work/quizzes/tests may not be made up; they may also result in a formal academic progress/professionalism review meeting.
