Academic Calendar

Wafid Institute’s academic calendar is based on a system that is widely used in Western academia. The year is split into four terms – Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring – in order to better accommodate the needs of our students.


Admissions closes one week prior to orientation. While we do not encourage students to start mid-quarter, exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis.
