Traditional undergraduate and graduate programs operate on a two semester plus 12-week summer academic calendar. The academic year for these programs consists of a fall semester that ends before the Christmas holidays and a spring semester that concludes in early May. For students in traditional undergraduate programs, summer courses may be used to lighten the course load during the regular academic semesters, to enrich and broaden the educational experience or to accelerate the student's progress toward graduation. Graduate students typically use the summer term as an integral part of their program.

Degree completion programs operate on a two semester system. The fall semester runs from July through December. The spring semester runs from January through June. Programs (cohorts) begin in July and January.

Professional development or continuing education students may begin and end their courses at various times, depending on the nature of the coursework taken.
