Important Dates

Managing your time effectively also means being aware of the many dates and deadlines that affect you as a Chang School student, and planning accordingly. Here are the various dates you should make yourself aware of and carefully record. Note: This is not an exhaustive list.

The Chang School will observe Ryerson University’s Fall and Winter Study Weeks; some courses may not observe these Study Week breaks (see Statutory Holidays/University Closed for Study Week closure information and consult individual course listings for course durations and scheduling information or read our Study Weeks FAQ).
