Academic Calendar for Online Programs in SIS 2022-2023


The Academic Calendar for Online Programs in SIS is divided into four terms. The Fall 1 term is restricted to only incoming students; no cross-enrollments are allowed across the Fall 1 and Fall 2 terms. Standard courses are delivered over 15 weeks.

The add/drop/withdrawal and refund schedule applies to all courses with a standard schedule during a term. Add/drop/withdrawal, refund, and grade change dates for courses on nonstandard schedules are calculated proportionately, based on the percentage of the course completed. Please visit the Course Drop and Withdrawals page for more information. A student’s state of residency may determine refund eligibility and amounts. Final grades are always due 72 hours after the official end date of the course.

The following programs are offered under the Academic Calendar for Online Programs in SIS: International Relations (MA)  and International Service (MIS) [Executive Track] .
