Spring 2018 - Graduate Relevant Dates

Registration and Enrolment Services

Spring Semester extends over a 14-week period beginning in mid-May and ending in mid-August. It is unique in that it offers students the opportunity to register for courses over the full 14-week semester as well as in two seven-week sessions which run concurrently with the 14-week semester. The session in the first half of spring is known as Intersession and the session in the last half of Spring Semester is known as Summer Session.
