The online program operates year-round, with three terms per year. Start dates are in September for the fall term, January for the spring term, and May for the summer term. Once the term begins and instructors publish their courses, Sakai is open for students to complete their studies until the specified term end date. Specific dates and deadlines are posted in Sakai each term.

The following academic calendars apply to online programs in Business Law, Compliance & ERM, Child Law, and Health Law.

Please note that online programs in global competition law follow the campus programs calendar.
