Revised 07/01/21


All degree programs at Chaminade University fall into two calendars for the academic year: semester and accelerated. The semester calendar consists of a Spring and a Fall term, each approximately 16 weeks in length as well as three summer sessions of shorting, varying lengths. The four Accelerated sessions begin in January, April, July and October.

Prior to each semester and accelerated session, a schedule of courses is published listing the instructor and time for courses offered. During regular semesters classes meet for 150 minutes each week. During accelerated sessions classes meet for 250 minutes each week. Some course offerings lend themselves to intensive study and may be scheduled within two, three or four week periods. All courses meet for an equivalent of 15 class hours per credit; studio art classes including environmental + interior design studios meet for 30 hours per credit; laboratory sections meet for 45 hours per credit.
