Academic Schedule for the Division
The Summer Semester, a mandatory five-week academic experience for Division students, starts the last weekend of June and ends the last Friday of July (for the 2020 summer semester this will be a four-week online course followed by a one week on-campus residential session).
Students enrolled in the Division’s summer semester are working to earn two college credits over a condensed, five-week period and, therefore, cannot be excused for any part of the period for any reason.
The Academic year begins in late August, when all Duquesne students return to campus to begin classes, and ends in early May.
Gussin Spiritan Division Reception
Currently enrolled Gussin Division students should plan to attend this special evening in mid-February on a Thursday or Friday evening. It begins with mass in the University chapel and continues with dinner and a program in the ballroom.
This is a mandatory event for all currently enrolled Gussin Division freshmen and other Gussin Division-enrolled students.
