Academic Calendars

The Marist academic calendar includes two fifteen week fall and spring semesters, a winter intersession, and a summer session. We have added the Winter 2019 intersession dates to the academic calendar.

Accelerated, evening and Saturday schedules allow adult students to pursue an undergraduate degree, professional certification, or executive level training at the Poughkeepsie campus location, Fishkill Executive Center or on-line through one of our distance learning programs.
