Academic Calendar


Angeles College Certificate Programs are non-standard term-based and does not operate according to a conventional academic calendar. New classes typically begin five to six times per year; however, start dates are varied, unlike a traditional four-term school year. Typically, VN courses meet for either 52 or 72 weeks, depending on whether the student is full or part time; the Phlebotomy Technician program meets for approximately 15 weeks; the Medical Assistant program meets for approximately 36 weeks; and other programs meet between 2 and 40 weeks, depending on the program.

This diverse and often intensive calendar allows students to achieve their educational goals in a more time-efficient manner. AC’s low student/faculty ratio and class size, which averages 25 students per class or fewer, facilitates active learning and collaboration. The laboratory ratio of students to instructor does not exceed 20 to 1, and the distance education ratio of students to faculty does not exceed 25 to 1 per ABHES regulation. All program schedules include national holidays.

Please note that the class schedule is subject to change without prior notice. Angeles College reserves the right to cancel scheduled classes due to availability, or for other reasons.
