The Academic Calendar

The annual construction of the planning calendar is a consultative process which includes units from across the UAlbany campus. The guidelines, variables considered, and units involved can be found in the “Final Planning Calendar Guidelines Approved by UPPC 5-7-14.” For a comprehensive history of the academic and planning calendars, see the document titled “Final Instructional Year Calendar Report,” which includes a longer narrative on the facets of calendar formation, past calendars back to 1968 and University Senate legislation related to the calendar.

Students participate in more than 200 student clubs and honor societies, and enjoy a busy calendar of campus events.
