The future’s bright when you know where you’re going. Calendars are essential for that.

Wingate University publishes calendars by academic year for all of our programs on all three campuses. There are three separate calendars per year: one for fall, one for spring and one for summer. For the graduate programs, each discipline also publishes their specific calendar within their group of pages on the website. The calendar below consolidates all of our calendars into a single, master calendar.

Academic calendar dates are subject to change, especially those for future semesters. Bookmark this page so you can check dates and track any changes to the calendar. If you need more information, just contact the Office of the Registrar.
