Academic Calendar

Ventura College provides two primary semesters of instruction – Fall and Spring – as well as a Summer intersession. Course times and delivery modes are noted in each semester’s online Schedule of Classes, available at www.venturacollege.edu about five weeks before each semester begins. The online schedule has continuous updates and includes the most up-to-date and accurate course information.

The special deadlines for semester-length classes are listed below for each primary semester; however, the specific length of each course dictates its deadlines (enrollment, drop, refund, etc.). Check online by clicking on the specific Course Record Number (CRN) for additional course information. Contact Admissions & Records for further assistance.
