EFSC Academic Calendar and Important Term Dates

Eastern Florida State College students should be aware of important dates for each term, such as fee due dates, class start and end dates and final exam dates which can all be found on web pages in this section. In addition to the main calendar, check the Important Term Dates for each term to view priority application deadlines, course registration dates, fee due date notices and the late registration policy plus more. EFSC offers courses in three different terms: Spring, Summer and Fall. Within each term are several different "parts of term," such as minimester A and B, which give students flexibility when building a class schedule. The shorter terms require the same amount of class time and work but are taught on a more accelerated schedule.
