Academic Calendar

Fei Tian College operates year-round with three semesters of 15 instructional weeks each. While the main Cuddebackvillle campus requires students to enroll in the Summer and Fall semesters, the Middletown campus requires the Fall and Spring semesters. All students may use the third semester for either annual vacation or optional studies.
