The Calendar includes course and program details and other information and student services. It is the University of Victoria's official source of curricular information, important academic dates, and registration and course requirements. The Calendar contains some of the policies and regulations all students of the University of Victoria are required to observe.

The contents of the Calendar are subject to continuing review and revision. The courses listed in the Course and Program sections are not necessarily offered each year.
