The Summer semester starts on May 20, 2024, and the Fall Semester begins on September 3rd. Please note that specific module courses may have different start times, so be sure to check your course schedule on Banner Web for more details.

The course will open in Brightspace 5 days prior to the actual start date of the course.  Check the course tile for access start date.
