Academic Calendar

BAU is a traditional university where the academic year is divided into two main semesters, Fall and Spring. Each semester provides 15 weeks of instruction, including final exams, with classes meeting once a week for three hours. Courses are also offered during the summer in two, optional, 8-week sessions, during which classes meet six hours per week. The academic calendar is subject to change. If any changes are made, they will be published on our website immediately, indicating the effective date.
