De La Salle University operates under the trimestral system. Its academic calendar consists of three (3) regular trimesters of about 14 weeks each, as follows:
|Term 1||August (third week) to December (second week)|
|Term 2||January (first week) to April (third week)|
|Term 3||May (first week) to August (second week)|
Under this system, students should be able to finish their studies in less time than their counterparts in the semestral program. This is made possible by the more evenly paced schedule of subjects for each trimester.
The specific dates may be found in the UniCalendar.
