2023-2024 Academic Calendar at CMU

The Carnegie Mellon University Academic Calendar serves as an information source and planning document for students, faculty, staff, and departments, as well as outside organizations. Registration dates, class start dates, add/drop deadlines, exam dates, and more are all included in the Carnegie Mellon academic calendar 2023-24.

The university operates on a semester-based academic calendar, with each academic year divided into two 15-week semesters, one in the fall and one in the spring.

CMU offers a summer session, which is divided into two 6-week sessions and one 12-week session, in addition to the regular fall and spring semesters. In addition, the university offers a mini-semester in January, known as the “Winter Session.”

The academic calendar’s exact dates may vary slightly from year to year, but the fall semester generally runs from late August to mid-December, and the spring semester runs from early January to early May. Summer sessions typically run from mid-May to early August, with the Winter Session taking place during the first three weeks of January.
