Academic Calendars


The Policy File (UNIVERSITY POLICIES --> Academics) covers development and approval of the Academic Calendar for upcoming year(s). The process is managed by the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs/Student Achievement, and is based on an array of algorithms that account for guidelines established by the State of California and the faculty unit's collective bargaining agreement.

Because all calendars vary from year to year, the AVP may need to also consult with appropriate campus officers. In years when scheduling faces challenges that force deviation from established algorithms, the University Senate must also be consulted.
