Spring Academic Calendar

THE ORIGINAL SPRING ACADEMIC CALENDAR HAS BEEN ADJUSTED TO ACCOMMODATE COVID-19.

Note:  Spring break days will be scattered throughout the spring semester in order to allow for inclement weather and a couple of “reading days.” Generally, classes will not take place on “reading days” that include March 10 and April 20.

Please note in the tables below:

  • On-ground class dates do not include full-term health science programs.
  • Full term online1 classes will observe a mid-term break March 1-5.
  • The health sciences table contains full term on ground dates for graduate Health Science Programs (Nursing,  Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies, Psychology) as well as undergraduate Nursing at both the Gainesville and North Atlanta Campuses

Weekend class dates and information can be found at: https://www.brenau.edu/academics/registrar/regsched/summer-weekend/

Note: Some on-ground Session 2 classes will follow the online date calendar. Please check with your instructor for updated class dates.
