Revised 08/22/2023


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

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.

Academic Year 2026-27- DRAFT

Final version of academic calendar will be published July 1, 2026.
