    Brandman MyPath Academic Calendar

    An academic year for the Brandman MyPath competency-based education program consists of the completion of at least 24 units and 48 weeks of instruction. Unlike the traditional academic calendar, the MyPath program has no semesters, trimesters, quarters, or other terms with set beginning and ending dates. Instead, the academic year begins on the day that a student completes the first substantive academic activity (starts attendance) and ends when both the minimum 24 units and 48 weeks of instruction have been completed. Since the program is self-paced, students may earn more than 24 units in a 48-week period, or students can take more than 48 weeks to earn the 24 units.

    In addition, there is a two-week break scheduled for December and June of each year in which teaching does not take place; therefore, these weeks do not count toward completion of the 48 weeks of instruction.

    The breaks for the 2017-2018 Academic Year are:

    • Winter Break: December 17, 2017 through December 30, 2017
    • Summer Break: June 17, 2018 through June 30, 2018
