2019-20 Academic Calendar: Graduate Studies in Business

*The deadline to add an accelerated-format course is the first night of class. All accelerated-format sessions begin on Monday of the first week, unless otherwise noted. After the seventh calendar day of the session, any course that is dropped will be recorded on the student's transcript, and an appropriate grade will be assigned.

**For accelerated courses, the last day to file for Pass/No Credit is the end of the second week of each session. Only one Pass/No Credit is allowed in an academic year.
