I just had another thought:

The set of books that are issued every year with administrative details
in one volume, details about available courses in another volume, and so
on ... in Australia, these books are the "University Calendar". In an
email conversation with an American some years back, I learned that this
usage of "calendar" was not familiar to her.

I mention this because it's another education word, but of course there
are many trans-oceanic differences/overlaps, even among such seemingly
innocent words as "shed", "lemonade" and countless others.
