Academic Calendar 2019-20

Subject to change. Updated 12/21/18

The UCSF SOD academic calendar is a quarter system (summer, fall, winter, spring). The calendar, based on UCSFs academic year, identifies key dates (e.g. when instruction begins/ends, public holidays, examination dates, breaks).
It’s important that you understand key dates and events; your personal (axiUm/Ilios) schedule is built from the academic calendar.

*Third and fourth year students should check their XO Grid for rotation/externship schedule before scheduling other activities during breaks.
