Definition of the Academic Year

The traditional academic year includes a fall and spring semester, which together include 30-31 weeks of instructional time; 15 in the Fall, and 15-16 in the Spring. The University considers critiques, juries, and examinations as instructional time, and therefore the Spring semester may include a 16th week for end-of-the-year presentation and assessment of student work.
