New academic session begins, first day of classes

 

1. The College follows a semester system with 15 weeks of teaching, a week for examinations, and a week for evaluation and results (for faculty only). This will mean an approximate term length of 16 weeks for students and 17 weeks for faculty. There will be a winter vacation of 11 weeks and a summer vacation of three weeks

2. Faculty members report to the college at least a week before the reopening day for planning and orientation in each semester and will be asked to stay up to two weeks after official closure for any planned staff development activities. The actual dates for such activities and the vacation will be communicated to the faculty at the start of every academic session.
