Academic Calendar 2014

West Coast University operates on a Semester System.  Each Semester is composed of two 10 week terms.  Classes start and end on different days within the term depending on a student's class schedule. 

Undergraduate classes typically begin the first Monday of the Term when offered in residential format.  Courses offered in a blended format typically begin on the first day (Sunday) of the term and end on the last day (Saturday) of the term. 

Graduate classes typically start on the first Sunday of the Term and end on the last Saturday of the Term.

Term Breaks only apply to Undergraduate students with the exception of students in the RN to BSN program, Thanksgiving Break and Winter Break apply both to Undergraduate and Graduate students. 

Nursing Clinical  courses follow the Academic Calendar.  National holidays may be observed as long as the required contact hours are met by the end of the term, and within the agreed upon schedule with Preceptors and Clinical sites. 

Dental Hygiene Clinical Sessions will require student to see patients during final examination week, but not during University holidays and breaks.
