Academic Year 2016-2017

The Academic Year begins with the start of the Fall semester and concludes with the end of the Summer semester of the succeeding calendar year. Used chiefly for event planning and scheduling, these calendars contain dates for these major term/part-of-term events: first/last day of classes, breaks/holidays, and Study Day/exams.

On all academic calendars, the abbreviation, POT, stands for Part(s) of Term.
