Academic Calendar

About Our Academic Calendar

  • Campbellsville University's academic calendar runs August 1 through July 31.
  • Undergraduate programs are based on the 16-week semester plus a number of summer terms.
  • Graduate programs use the semester, trimester, and other program-specific terms.
  • "Bi-Term" refers to either the first or second half of a regular 16-week semester as indicated on the academic calendar.
  • All terms generate "semester" credit hours for successfully completed courses.
