Assumption University has adopted the semester system. An academic year is divided into two semesters and a summer session. A semester lasts for approximately sixteen weeks. 

  • First Semester  - begins in August and ends in December.
  • Second Semester  - begins in January and ends in May.
  • Summer Session - June and August (optional).

One credit hour requires a minimum of 15 hours of class attendance; a subject involving 3 credit hours will require at least 45 hours in class. To qualify for the final examination in any subject, each student must be present for at least 80% of the class meetings. In some exceptional cases, at the discretion of the lecturer and/or the Dean of the Faculty concerned, this requirement may be waived.
