* Undergraduate one-week seminars are scheduled throughout the summer and listed in the course offerings.

Notes:

  1. The academic calendar dates are subject to change without prior notice.
  2. A fifth class date is scheduled for each session for Saturday classes. The make-up date is for College-wide cancellations due to circumstances beyond the control of the College, such as inclement weather. Students are expected to keep their schedules open on that date in case the College determines that a make-up session is needed.
