Academic calendars may vary among University divisions. Students planning to register for courses at another school within Johns Hopkins University should review the academic calendar for that division.

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 Attendance Policy).
