Calendar and Schedules

Program Calendar

The IEP consists of the same three semester terms (fall, spring, and summer) as all other Faulkner programs. However, unlike the semesters for other programs all three semesters for the IEP are 15 weeks in length. Each IEP semester begins with 7 weeks of classes followed by a one week break and then 7 more weeks of classes. All IEP semesters begin at the same time as the regular university schedule indicates.
