Why do courses at different colleges have different schedules?
Currently, the fifteen member colleges operate on different academic calendars. All of the courses are semester courses, which means they run for sixteen weeks. All colleges have a fall, spring, and summer session. Semesters begin on the same dates, but may end on different dates at each college. Winter and spring break will also differ from one college to the next. As a student it is your responsibility to be aware of and follow each college’s academic calendar.
