Academic Calendar & Schedules

Your time at UIU is valuable. Make every day count!

Upper Iowa University hosts six sessions throughout the academic year. Each session is just eight weeks long with the exception of one six week summer session, allowing students to focus on fewer classes at once. Session dates, holidays and breaks are the same across all UIU locations.
