Academic calendars may vary among University divisions. Students planning to register for courses at the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Carey Business School should request an academic calendar specifically from those divisions.

In preparing the calendar for an academic year, it is impossible to avoid conflict with some religious holidays. As conflicts arise, efforts are made to make special arrangements for students affected (see SON Religious Observance and Holidays Policy).

Courses that need to follow a different academic schedule will need to be reviewed by both Department Chairs.  If they approve of the change(s) then the proposal would go to Associate Deans for Academic Affairs and Student Affairs for final review.
