Click here to download a printable version of the academic calendar (2015-2016). LaGuardia's academic calendar consists of two enhanced 18-week semesters. Each semester is split into a 12-week session (Fall I and Spring I) and a 6-week session (Fall II and Spring II). Classes are longer and/or meet more frequently in Fall II and Spring II, since students have to complete Session I coursework in half the time. This structure provides students with the option of earning more credits per semester than a traditional academic calendar. It also allows greater flexibility and choice in designing a program of study.
*Drop - Students may drop a course and not receive a grade up until the 'Last Day to Drop for 25% Tuition Refund'. **Withdraw– Students may withdraw from classes after the Last Day to Drop for 25% Tuition Refund through the Last Day to Withdraw; receive a “W” grade that is not calculated in the GPA. Students who ofﬁcially withdraw from a course are NOT eligible for a tuition refund. ***Withdrawal Drop “WD”– A WD grade is assigned to students who drop a course after Financial Aid Certiﬁcation date in Session I until the last day to drop a course for 25% Tuition Refund . “WD” indicates that student attended a class at least once before dropping it. A WD grade will not appear on the Transcript, and is not calculated in the GPA. Note: Evening Classes begin at 4:35 PM. Calendar Revised September 14, 2015
