January and June on-campus intensive sessions are held from one Wednesday until midday the following Wednesday. Students beginning their degree program should report to New Student Orientation by 9:00 AM on the opening Wednesday. Returning students should arrive prior to the mandatory Presidential Address on Wednesday afternoon.

Graduation is held in the afternoon of Sunday during each June on-campus intensive.

Important Dates

The semester for each on-campus intensive begins several weeks before the on-campus dates and lasts for a total of five months. For the sake of convenience we refer to a “June semester” and a “January semester” even though the start and end dates of the actual semester do not necessarily come entirely in January and June.
