Academic Calendar


Timing is everything, especially when it comes to going to college. Our academic calendars let you know crucial deadlines for registration, last days to add classes, last days to drop classes, midterm, exam schedules, and most important, when you get time off. Check out all the important dates for planning your semester. Find your priority registration date, payment due dates, last day to add or drop classes, see when you need to start studying for exams or find out when a semester break starts. Due to the difference in academic system between U.S. and Korea, the academic semesters at GMU Korea have different starting and ending dates than stateside.
