2023-2024 Academic Calendar at UChicago

Learn about the important dates, registration dates, events, and deadlines on the UChicago Academic Calendar 2023-2024. It also includes the University of Chicago Law Academic Calendar 2023-2024.

Uchicago follows the quarter system, with Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer. The quarter system is a distinctive feature of traditional UChicago education.

It allows University of Chicago students to take fewer courses per quarter than a semester system, but more courses overall. A quarter at UChicago typically lasts 9-10 weeks.
