Academic Calendar

Taylor University's academic year consists of fall and spring semesters and optional January interterm and summer sessions.

Under this schedule, fall-semester activities including examinations are concluded prior to the Christmas recess.  Classes are conducted each semester for a period of 15 weeks including a 4-day examination period. 

The optional January interterm provides students an intensive period of study in a single course or opportunities to study in off-campus centers in the United States and international locations. 

Additionally, three summer sessions are available to enhance and supplement students' educational programs and to meet special program requirements.

*The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated changes in the Spring 2021 semester and January 2021 term. View the Jterm/Spring 2021 Calendar here.*
