Academic Calendars

You may be familiar with William Penn’s academic calendar which contains the start and dates for each marking period, dates for report cards and interim, days when school is closed, etc. Academic Calendars at the college-level contain important dates for when classes begin and end, when you can register for future semesters, the last day to drop a class without penalty, holidays when classes are canceled, and so on. If you are taking college-level courses, whether at Penn through Dual Enrollment or directly with the university as Transfer Credit courses, it is crucial to be aware of these important dates!
