Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendars contain important deadlines and holidays. The 10 University of Hawaiʻi campuses begin each semester on the same date and observe the same holidays. If taking classes at more than one UH campus, students should check the academic calendar for that campus. Deadlines may vary from campus to campus.

Calendars

Full Term: Dates listed are for semester-long courses. UH West Oʻahu full-term is 15-week, while all other UH campuses full-term is 16-week. Access the full current academic calendar here.
