Academic Calendar

The online publication the Academic Calendar is created annually and maintained by APSS. This calendar reflects CSU, Chico's academic semesters and includes the inter-session term that follows each semester (Winter Session; Summer Sessions).  Each calendar is approved by the university president annually and published with an Executive Memorandum from the Office of the President.

Below are links to the .PDF files for the current academic calendar as well as the five (5) prior academic calendars that precede it. 

The Academic Calendar does not indicate work days. Find information regarding work days on the CSU, Chico Faculty/Staff Calendar.
