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 11-14-18.” 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.
