Academic Calendar

Academic Calendar Handout for 2022/23

Goddard’s Academic Calendar includes registration, semester start and end dates, residencies, and commencement. When applying to Goddard, consider the academic calendar (inclusive of residency dates and instructional sites) when selecting your starting term.

A Goddard academic year is composed of two semesters (fall and spring). A semester is 17 weeks long. Each semester includes a residency either the first week or the third week of the semester. On-site residencies take place at Goddard’s main campus in Plainfield, VT and its two instructional sites in Port Townsend, WA, and Seattle, WA.

Current faculty, staff, and students can access the program-specific dates and deadlines through their program space in Canvas.

Goddard has rolling admissions.  For further information, visit our Admissions page or submit an Information Request Form.
