Academic Calendar

Last updated: January 22, 2021 at 1:36 PM

The Spring 2021 semester starts Feb. 1.

Unlike typical spring semesters, there will be no week-long break in February, and for the first time in Brandeis’ history, our community will celebrate the Passover holiday on campus. 

There will be no classes on Feb. 15, March 9, March 29, April 2 and April 20.

The remainder of the spring semester calendar is unchanged at this time, including the last day of classes on May 5, and the May 23 date for Commencement. Please review the Academic Calendar for any questions about dates for the spring semester.

As in the fall, the spring semester will follow a mixed teaching format, allowing for in-person, hybrid and fully remote classes, and our health and safety requirements will be similar to the fall semester.
