Important Academic Dates - Fall 2021

In addition to the traditional, full semester schedule, there are several other course meeting schedules when some courses meet, including a pre-term session that occurs before the official start of the semester, two half-semester sessions that take place during the regular semester (the first session takes place during the first seven weeks of the semester, and the second session takes place during the last seven weeks of the semester), and a separate schedule for the Executive MPH program.  Specific dates for each of these sessions, and the regular term session, are listed below in the relevant drop down menu.  Tuition adjusment information for students related to complete withdrawal may be found here.

Each session has specific add/drop/swap dates and grading status change deadlines--see drop downs below.
