University of Memphis Academic Calendar


Academic Year 2021-2022

The Academic Year begins with the start of the Fall semester and concludes with the end of the Summer semester of the succeeding calendar year. Used chiefly for event planning and scheduling, these calendars contain dates for these major term/part-of-term events: first/last day of classes, breaks/holidays, and Study Day/exams.

Note: The calendar is subject to change at any time prior to or during an academic term due to emergencies or causes beyond the reasonable control of the institution, including severe weather, loss of utility services, or orders by federal or state agencies.

Study Week Definition: The four day period preceding final examinations. No student social or athletic functions shall be scheduled during Study Week.

Study Day Definition: The day prior to final examinations during most regular semesters. No academic activities shall be scheduled on Study Day. No study or review sessions which the student may feel obligated to attend may be scheduled.
