Academic Calendar

Tompkins Cortland offers academic sessions in fall, winter, spring, and summer each year. In fall, spring, and summer, varying start dates and session lengths, as well as evening courses, allow students to tailor schedules to fit their lives. Winter courses happen all online for a set length of four weeks. In addition to important session dates, the Academic Calendar also lists official College breaks and significant ceremonies.
