Academic Calendar

In order to be responsive to the needs of communities and students, KCTCS institutions offer terms in a variety of lengths from two weeks to 16 weeks.  The two primary terms begin in August and January.  The colleges offer shorter sessions within these two terms, allowing students the flexibility to schedule classes to best meet their needs.  A variety of sessions from two to eight weeks are also available during the summer months.

All KCTCS colleges follow a common policy for establishing important dates within each session such as deadlines for adding and dropping classes and receiving refunds.  Students should contact the Records/Admission office at their local college for the local academic calendar. 

The following closings are applicable to all KCTCS institutions:
