Academic Year

Type of SystemSemester
Entrance DatesJanuary, September
Notes:Undergraduate Students: Lakehead University is a two term, eight-month academic session institution; however, courses are also offered in the spring/summer semester. Our school offers full course equivalent credits (two term courses) and one half course equivalent credits (one term courses). Most of our undergraduate programs are designed with courses that are calendared as full course equivalent credits or half course equivalent credits that require successful completion of the fall session prerequisite course. Therefore, almost all of our programs require that a student begin their program of study at Lakehead University in the fall session (September).
Graduate Students: Please visit the Graduate Studies Web site at to find out the start terms for graduate programs.
