Calendar


Augusta University has adopted a streamlined web calendar system for the purposes of providing important date driven information to students, faculty, staff and our public constituents. 

There are two main calendar views which are described below:  1) the Academic Calendar and 2) the Events Calendar.  There can be an infinite number of customized views for each department.

 A calendar “event” is an activity about which our internal or external stakeholders need to know.  Each calendar event must have an Office of Record that is responsible for posting and maintaining information about the event on the calendar.  This Office would also assume responsibility for providing more information about the event should there be questions. 

The Office of Record will need to choose which of the main calendar views the event should be listed on primarily.  If the event should be included in the Academic Calendar, a request should be made to the Registrar’s Office.  If the event should be included in the Events Calendar, the Office’s web publisher will be able to post the event directly.

All events should also be categorized by selecting at least one sub-category that will generally enable the Office of Record to highlight these on a separate view.  ALL events will aggregate under one of the two Master Calendar Categories (Academic or Events). Our Categories page has a list of all categories and sub-categories for the calendar. Review the Keywords for Events in the left menu to see which keywords you might use.

DCM will support an Office of Record that wishes to set up a departmental calendar that lists events that do not display on the Master Calendar view(s).


Purpose: The purpose of this calendar is to post date-driven information for our existing students, faculty and staff. This information will also have some appeal to prospective and newly admitted students and their parents. It will include, but not be limited to, information that is of interest broadly such as admissions, financial aid, registration, payment, grading, exams, commencements, and academic holidays. It will the home of the academic calendar recommended by the University Calendar Committee and approved by the Provost.

All events should also be categorized by selecting at least one sub-category that will generally enable the Office of Record to highlight these on a separate view.

This view of the calendar will include all dates of the academic semester(s) and year(s) including but not limited to:

  • registration, add/drop, payment deadlines
  • first day of class, last day of class, exams
  • any class breaks (holidays, fall pause, reading day, spring break, etc.)
  • graduation activities (by college and overall)

Purpose: The purpose of this calendar is to post date-driven information for our existing students, faculty, staff and external constituents. It will include, but not be limited to, information about any event that is hosted by a Augusta University constituent group and of broad interest for internal and/or external audiences such as campus events for students, campus events for faculty and/or staff, campus events we host for the public. (Activities of interest to single departments should not be included.)

All events should also be categorized by selecting at least one sub-category that will generally enable the Office of Record to highlight these on a separate view.

This view of the calendar will include all dates of events in which a broad internal audience (more than one department) are invited to including but not limited to:

  • Events held at the Maxwell Performing Arts Theatre
