Student Academic Calendar (Registration Dates and Deadlines)
*The Academic Affairs Administrative Calendar contains dates and deadlines for the Office of Academic Affairs. All dates and schedules are provided for planning purposes and are subject to change. Please check with the Office of Academic Affairs at x7-5717 for any updates.
Academic Calendars will be structured to provide a minimum of 75 class days per semester—excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays—for a minimum of 150 class days per academic year. The chancellor of the constituent institutions shall submit to the president by October 15 of each year copies of the calendars for the subsequent academic year.
All UNC campuses must ensure that every course offered for academic credit adheres to the standard of a minimum of 750 scheduled minutes of instructional time or the equivalent per credit hour. The time may include required examination periods, but may not include study days. In setting the academic calendar for each semester, campuses may set holiday periods, study days, and final examinations appropriate to accommodate the scheduled classes. In no case may a campus set a calendar that has optional final examinations if the time is considered a part of the required minimum class time.
UNC Charlotte provides reasonable accommodations for religious observances required by a student’s practice or belief. The following websites are provided to assist faculty in identifying holidays.
