Academic Calendar

Staying on track means keeping up with what’s going on.

Centre operates on two full semesters (Fall and Spring), and a winter-term, known as “CentreTerm” (approx. 3 weeks). During CentreTerm, students are offered classes that pertain to their majors and minors as well as exciting and unusual classes not offered during regular semesters. Students attend one course for three hours per day, every day, to receive a full 3-hour credit. CentreTerm is also a wonderful time to study abroad as there are many trips not regularly offered during the full semesters.

The Office of the Registrar is your resource for course registration and schedules, academic policies, grades, transcript requests, enrollment verification, approvals off campus coursework including study abroad, and confirming graduation eligibility.
