U.S. Other Information
- Academic Year
- Grading System
- Classroom Environment
The academic calendar usually begins in August or September and continues through May or June. The majority of new students begin in Autumn, so it is a good idea for international students to also begin their US university studies at this time. There is a lot of excitement at the beginning of the school year and students form many great friendships during this time, as they are all adjusting to a new phase of academic life. Additionally, many courses are designed for students to take them in sequence, starting in Autumn and continuing through the year.
The academic year at many schools is composed of two terms called “semesters.” (Some schools use a three-term calendar known as the “trimester” system.) Still, others further divide the year into the quarter system of four terms, including an optional Summer session. Basically, if you exclude the Summer session, the academic year is either comprised of two semesters or three quarter terms.
