The Important Dates PDF has been used on the Shoreline website for many years to document the most important dates students, faculty, and staff need to know for the quarter, such as the last day to register for classes, add/drop dates, and the final exam schedule. Unfortunately, if a single date has to be changed, the entire PDF has to be updated and then re-uploaded to the website. Sometimes these updates can go unnoticed and students have missed deadlines because they referenced an old version of the document.
In recent years, the school implemented an online calendar system which houses all of these important dates as well as all events happening on campus including theater performances, community events, club activities, faculty-sponsored talks, and athletics. Having a digital version of the calendar allows for any updates to dates, times, and information about an event to be automatically updated among all instances of that information and allows for students to have the most accurate, up-to-date information at their fingertips.
Transitioning from using the Important Dates PDF to encouraging students to reference the online Academic Calendar will ensure that students have the correct dates available to them at all times.
Different Calendar Views
There are two different views available for the Academic Calendar. If you prefer a list format, you can use the 'Quarterly' view to see all dates for that quarter. By clicking on the arrows located at the top and bottom of the page, you can see future and previous quarters.
If you prefer a calendar view, click on 'Monthly Calendar' to see the events/important dates to note for that particular month. Again, you can use the arrows above to view upcoming as well as previous months.
