The Academic Calendar serves as an information source and planning document for students, faculty, staff and departments, as well as outside organizations. The calendar includes registration dates, class start dates, add/drop deadlines, exam dates and more. The FIU Registrar Office publishes the official academic calendar about a year before the start of an academic year. Click here to view the current FIU Academic Calendars.
All Developmental Science Graduate students must complete an annual evaluation as a means of documenting academic, professional, and social progress toward their degree. These evaluations are completed by the student and their Major Professor from their first year through to the year they pass their qualifying exam; at that point they become doctoral candidates. Upon reaching candidacy, students must then have the form signed by their Major Professor and all members of their dissertation committee.

College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) Graduate Student Information
The College has the responsibility for approving all graduate paperwork associated with theses and dissertations. Our deadlines are one week in advance of those of the UGS. We ensure that students complete the formal paperwork correctly and complete the necessary training required by the UGS prior to advancing to candidacy. The College is also responsible for generation of contracts and waivers to students supported with assistantships. Our goal is to provide reliable and rapid service to those involved with graduate education. Detailed information has been provided on the CAS Graduate Student website to ensure students move through the degree processes in a timely manner.
