Tompkins Cortland offers courses in the spring, fall, and summer of each calendar year. The College offers traditional full-semester courses in the fall and spring, as well as three iterations of five-week courses and two iterations of 7½-week courses in the fall and spring. The summer session offers two five-week sessions, one eight-week evening session, and a 10-week session. NOTE: Summer session offerings often overlap. In addition to important session dates, the Academic Calendar also lists official College breaks and significant ceremonies.
