Academic calendars are essential tools in running educational institutions, detailing key dates like when tuition payments are due and breaks such as holidays. They provide data-driven insight into daily school business operations, such as student payments and financial aid submission deadlines that need to be accounted for in order to guarantee financial stability for an institution. Creating a school calendar can be done using any number of methods suited for any school or university.
