2020-2021 Academic Calendar

Convenient and flexible course schedules at UMGC Europe help you fit education into your busy life.

At University of Maryland Global Campus, we've designed our academic calendar to help you balance your academic schedule with family and job commitments. We offer multiple sessions each semester, so you can fit one or more courses into your life each fall, spring, and summer.

Choose from online, on-site, or hybrid formats and check the schedule of classes to see what's being offered in the upcoming term. Our on-site classes are offered on evenings and weekends since the majority of our students are working while pursuing a degree.
