Academic Calendar

ASU regularly offers classes in the fall, spring and summer terms with the following components:

Fall/Spring Session A: first 7.5-week session
Fall/Spring Session B: second 7.5-week session
Fall/Spring Session C: full semester (15 weeks plus final exams)

Summer Session A: first 6-week session
Summer Session B: second 6-week session
Summer Session C: 8-week session

If a class is scheduled in a session other than Session A, B or C, the drop/add/withdrawal deadlines are prorated based on the length of the class. Check the calendar icon deadlines next to each class on your schedule in My ASU for the prorated deadline dates.

All dates are subject to change without notice.
