Academic Calendar

New College operates on a 4-1-4 calendar system. The academic year consists of two 14-week semesters, each divided into two 7-week modules, with a 1-week examination period after the fourteenth week. A 4-week independent study project (ISP) interterm in January separates the two 14-week semesters. Only undergraduate students engage in independent study projects during the interterm.
