Guidelines and policies for the IUPUI academic calendar
As you develop your courses, keep in mind these guidelines that govern the academic calendar at IUPUI.
Fall and spring terms have 15 weeks of instruction (75 days excluding weekends).
Summer terms have 12 weeks of instruction (60 days excluding weekends). Most summer classes are scheduled in one of two major summer sessions of 6 weeks each (30 days excluding weekends).
The fall and spring terms are each followed by six days for final exams. Each final exam period is two hours long.
Fall term final exams must end no later than December 21 for there to be sufficient time for grade submission and transcript availability.
Spring term final exams must end at least one day before Commencement. When the normal Monday start of the term in January would result in finals ending the same day as Commencement, Weekend College classes are scheduled to start on Saturday two days before the Monday start of the term.
Summer terms have no special days for final exams.
