The fall semester starts approximately August 26, the spring semester starts approximately January 27 and two summer sessions of six weeks begin in June and mid-July. Consult the Academic Calendar at http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/onestop/calendars/academic-calendars for specific starting dates. Courses are offered from early morning to late evening each semester and in the summer. Students are expected to attend both the fall and spring semesters; students who do not must apply for readmission.
Attendance in the summer program is optional. Students who receive financial aid under the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) should realize that these awards are available for no more than a total of eight semesters (ten for SEEK). TAP assistance for a summer session will count as one-half a semester; the other half may be used only in a subsequent summer session.
