Academic Calendar and Registration Policies


Please note quarter and semester start and end dates for the 2013–2014 academic year. Click on the links above to access detailed calendars for either the Quarter-Based Programs or the Semester-Based Programs. 

Walden University’s Academic Calendar is broken up into Quarter-Based Terms (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer) and Semester-Based Terms (Fall, Spring, and Summer). Within each of these terms, there are Parts of Term that correlate to specific course lengths. These calendars provide term-specific information and list the last day to add or drop a course (with refund) and the last day to withdraw with a grade of “W.” The calendars also contain coding that is aligned with the Office of the Registrar’s system for student  registration.

For a downloadable (and expanded) Academic Calendar in PDF format, visit the registrar’s Academic Calendar web page.
