Notes

Beginning with the Fall 2015 semester, and extending through the summer semesters of 2019, FDU operated academic programs under two distinct calendars, a traditional term calendar and a non-traditional term calendar. Beginning with the Fall 2019 semester, all programs follow the traditional term calendar.

Major Religious Holy Days

The University respects the observance of major religious holy days by members of the campus community. To the extent possible, officers of administration and of instruction responsible for scheduling are expected to avoid conflict with such observances.

The academic calendar is subject to change with appropriate notice.
