Academic Calendar

Important Changes to the Fall 2015 Academic Calendar
Second Update (August 20, 2015) 

​Please note changes to the Fall 2015 academic calendar only for classes in the following schools:

  • Fordham College at Rose Hill
  • Fordham College at Lincoln Center
  • Gabelli School of Business: Undergraduate
  • School of Professional & Continuing Studies
  • Graduate School of Arts & Sciences
  • Graduate School of Religion & Religious Education

Tuesday, September 8 will follow a Tuesday schedule (not the Monday schedule originally posted.)

Wednesday, September 9 will follow a Monday schedule (not the Wednesday schedule originally posted.)

(UPDATE) Tuesday, October 6 will follow a Tuesday schedule (not a Wednesday schedule as announced the week of August 3rd).

(UPDATE) Friday, December 11 (Reading Day) may be used as a make-up day for Wednesday classes. 

The above changes are necessary to allow Tuesday courses to meet before the end of add/drop while still maintaining the required 15 meeting times for each day of the week. We regret the disruption this late notice may cause in your planning for the Fall term.

Note that for the remaining schools of Fordham University, the original schedules remain unchanged.


For undergraduate academic calendars, please make a selection by semester term below.
