The 2021-2022 calendar was announced on December 17, 2020. Throughout the pandemic, we have adapted and changed—sometimes with limited notice—as circumstances require. We are asking that we retain that flexibility with this calendar.

The Spring 2022 calendar dates were updated on Monday, January 10, 2022.

Please note: The deadline to drop all classes and leave the college without financial penalty is Friday, February 4, 2022.
