Indiana University Common Calendar (Fall & Spring)
Indiana University had not historically shared common calendar dates across the seven campuses throughout the state. As a result, campuses had different refund policies, financial aid disbursement rules, drop/add issues, and other processing variations which resulted in many inefficiencies in the service that was provided to students, faculty, and staff. The benefits of setting select common calendar dates on all IU campuses, for Fall and Spring terms, include the ability to better facilitate multi-campus students and faculty.
In April of 2014, the IU Board of Trustees approved these select common calendar dates for implementation in the Fall 2014 term and beyond.
The common IU calendar established the following select dates for the Fall and Spring terms...
- First day of classes
- Census date (i.e., official enrollment date)
- 100% refund date -- end of first week
- 75% refund date -- end of second week
- 50% refund date -- end of third week
- 25% refund date -- end of fourth week
- Last day to drop classes and receive an automatic "W" grade
What dates are still unique to individual campuses?
- sessions within the semester
- fall and spring breaks
- non-standard and weekend class sessions may begin earlier or end later than the common semester dates, as determined by the individual campus
