Academic Calendar

The American Campus’ programs of study are designed on four academic years each consisting of three semesters, paralleling semesters at the U.S. institutions. This allows faculty and student exchanges between the TAC and partnering universities for specific programs.

Semesters are not identified by season (i.e. fall, spring, or summer) as they are in the United States because of confusion between southern hemisphere and northern hemisphere partnering schools. Semesters are approximately 16 weeks with one to two breaks in between.

The American Campus’ programs of study are completed in 4  semesters for two-year degrees or 8 semesters for four-year degrees.

Each semester is approximately 16 weeks with one to two week breaks in between. Semesters follow the following schedule:

  • Semester A: January – May
  • Semester B: June  – August
  • Semester C: August – December

When new students begin a program they participate in an orientation that guides them through the expectations of an American program of study and have opportunities to apply new learning skills with mentoring students and faculty. They then work with a cohort group and their instructors to learn and apply course materials.

Note: The start and end of the semester may vary based on the academic program.
