Brandman MyPath Academic Calendar

An academic year for the Brandman MyPath competency-based education program consists of 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 a student starts attendance and ends when both the minimum 24 units and 48 weeks of instruction has 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.

  • Winter Break December 21, 2015 through January 2, 2016
  • Summer Break June 19, 2016 - July 2, 2016
