The calendar for the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Knoxville is based on three equal trimesters that include a minimum of 216 instructional days. The three trimesters are:

Fall:            September, October, November, December
Spring:       January, February, March, April
Summer:    May, June, July, August

   432 hours = 1 trimester
   864 hours = 2 trimesters

The college may extend the ending dates of periods of instruction at any time prior to or during the academic year due to emergencies beyond the reasonable control of the school, including severe weather, loss of utilities, or orders by governing agencies.
