Welcome to the Academic Calendar!

A new academic calendar website is being introduced to the University of Calgary community. Substantial improvements include a modern product and website, and an accessible, mobile-friendly and searchable digital experience.

UCalgary and the Office of the Registrar initiated a project to update the current calendar software in June 2022. The old product was no longer supported, incompatible with modern browsers and mobile devices, and encountered frequent site failures in the administrative module. A full analysis of requirements was gathered, followed by a request for proposal process to award a contract to a new vendor for managing our university academic calendar. The contract was awarded to a company called Coursedog.

Important Upgrade 

The new system supports many improved features including: 

  • A modern product and website that provides easier navigation, is mobile and tablet friendly, and meets web accessibility standards enabling students to use reader devices.

  • Implementation of a modern search tool provides quick and easy access to academic regulations, policies, programs and course information.

  • Improved efficiency of our governance processes. Our new unified product will reduce risks of errors, support modern workflow processes and enable everyone involved in calendar changes to work from a singular source of truth.

Implementation has been a University of Calgary community effort! 

Converting the old calendar into a new and modern format has been a substantial undertaking that could not have been completed without the input and support of so many members of the university community. A big thanks to the many individuals and campus groups, including students, faculty and staff who contributed time and energy into helping launch the new academic calendar website.

Site Disclaimer

Please read the Important Notice and Disclaimer to understand your rights and responsibilities with regards to using the Academic Calendar.

The University of Calgary, located in the heart of Southern Alberta, both acknowledges and pays tribute to the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7, which include the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, the Piikani, and the Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta (districts 5 and 6).

The University of Calgary is situated on land Northwest of where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, a site traditionally known as Moh’kins’tsis to the Blackfoot, Wîchîspa to the Stoney Nakoda, and Guts’ists’i to the Tsuut’ina. On this land and in this place we strive to learn together, walk together, and grow together “in a good way.”
