Academic Calendar

Beginning this summer, please use the university registrar's academic calendars here or at the button below. On that page, use the drop down menus to select a specific term and then the term session (i.e., PH Early Summer 2022, PH late Summer 2022, PH Summer 2022, etc.).

There is no undergraduate summer semester, so you will see the Fall 2022 calendar. Choose a semester from the first academic term dropdown menu, then choose your specific term from the term drop down menu. Examples in images below.

Main University Academic Calendar

Religious Observance Policy

Both Tulane’s policy of non-discrimination on the basis of religion and our core values of diversity and inclusion require instructors to make reasonable accommodations to help students avoid negative academic consequences when their religious obligations conflict with academic requirements. Every reasonable effort should be made to allow members of the university community to observe their religious holidays without jeopardizing the fulfillment of their academic obligations. It is never acceptable for an instructor to compel a student to choose between religious observance and academic work. Absence from classes or examinations for religious reasons does not relieve students from responsibility for any part of the course work required during the period of absence. It is the obligation of the student to provide faculty within the first two weeks of each semester their intent to observe the holiday so that alternative arrangements convenient to both students and faculty can be made at the earliest opportunity. Students who make such arrangements will not be required to attend classes or take examinations on the designated days, and faculty must provide reasonable opportunities for such students to make up missed work and examinations. Exceptions to the requirement of a make-up examination must be approved in advance by the dean of the school in which the course is offered.
