Academic Calendar

Please be advised that dates in this calendar are tentative and subject to change, particularly the start / end dates of a semester, until the final schedule is posted on LOCUS by the University Registrar. Students should not book airline tickets until the academic calendar has been officially finalized.


SPECIAL NOTE FOR FALL 2021: Students traveling to the JFRC for Fall 2021 are not required to procure student visas, therefore, they will have under 90 days to be in Italy and the Schengen territory. The modified program running from Sept. 16-Dec. 4 is 79 days. If students want to travel throughout in Europe (local regulations allowing) after the program concludes on Dec. 4, they will have 10 days. By December 14th, they will need to exit Italy and the Schengen territory. If students opt to travel between Dec. 4 and 13, they will not be able to leave items at the JFRC.
