Academic Calendar

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/CLE) 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.

Any student with Non-Passing or Incomplete grades at the end of their first year or who need to make-up and remediate spring quarter courses will be required to complete requirements during some or all of the summer.
