Graduate Academic Calendar
The official academic Calendar for the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies is online. By May 1 each year the new Graduate Academic Calendar for the year is published.
Consult the Calendar for current information on all programs, policies and procedures related to graduate studies. A list of important dates (i.e. term start and end dates, last date for late registration, convocation) can be found on the right side of the main calendar page under the link to "All Academic Dates."
Students are responsible for being aware of deadlines and for acting on them in a timely fashion. Some activities (including but not limited to registration each term, course enrollment changes or withdrawal from courses or from the program) have financial consequences if the relevant deadlines are not met. Mark such dates in your personal calendar!
