The American College of the Mediterranean's academic calendars closely follow those of American colleges and universities in the United States, with adjustments for French holidays.  

A note to students: ACM advises that students do not make any travel arrangements prior to the first week of classes. Field studies and course excursions can be scheduled during weekends and breaks, so ACM recommends not purchasing any tickets or scheduling any travel until after learning of course requirements on-site.
