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. January interterm is tuition-free; students only pay for room and board. 

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