Fall 2015 – Full Term
Note: The academic year typically begins the Tuesday after Labor Day and ends with Commencement the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend in May. The number of weeks in each semester is determined by the Academic Calendar Committee and approved by the Faculty Assembly. The Committee assures that there are enough weeks in each semester so that each course on a typical schedule meets the New York State standard for 750 instructional/class minutes per credit hour or 2250 minutes for three credits.
