Student life at Metropolitan Community College

Academic Calendar 2020-2021

MCC Vancouver Campus Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendar is the official information about programs and courses offered at Metropolitan Community College.  

Starting on January 1st, 2020, we will be offering standard scheduling on most of our programs with four semesters:  Fall (September - December), Spring (January - April), Summer I (May - June) and Summer II (July - August).  Certain short programs and part-time programs may have different schedule and students are encouraged to consult with college staff before registration.  

Students are expected to attend classes from the first day to the last day of each semester to ensure successful completion of courses.  Students are encouraged to take the Academic Calendar into consideration while making travel plans during semester break.  The College may not be able to make special arrangements for make-up exams or late arrival registrations.  

The programs, courses, dates in the Academic Calendar have been pre-determined and may change from time to time.  The College will notify students ahead of time for confirmation of any changes.
