2002-03 Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendar includes the fundamental academic year dates and facilitates future planning.  Several years calendars are available in advance.  The Calendar does not include all of the registration- and payment-related dates.  It is compiled by the Office of Curriculum and Registration with input and approval from many other units on campus and final approval by the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR).  These dates can only be changed with ABOR approval.

The External Link Registration Dates & Deadlines calendar lists the critical class registration- and payment-related dates, plus all dates included in the Academic Calendar and is also compiled by the Office of Curriculum and Registration with input from several other units on campus (Bursar's Office, Financial Aid, the colleges, etc).
