ESL Academic Calendar

  • There are five nine-week sessions per year: Spring I, Spring II, Summer, Fall I, and Fall II. The Spring I and Fall I sessions start at the same time as Gannon's Academic semesters so that the students who study in the ESL program and have spouses or relatives in a degree program or vice versa, can follow the same travel or vacation plans.
