Academic Calendar

Please note: The College respects individuals’ religious observances. If you are unable to make any class session, including a Friday session, because of religious observance, please notify the course instructor by the first class session so that an alternative means can be identified for fulfilling missed class material and course assignments.

*NOTICE: First and Second Financial Aid Distribution Dates are the dates the Business Office can begin to draw down funds and post to student accounts and not the dates the financial aid is disbursed to the student.
