Classes taken during an 8-week session cover the same amount of content and have the same workload as traditional 16-week classes at an accelerated pace. This means you can expect to spend at least 15 hours per week on a 3-credit lecture course taught over 8 weeks.
At this time, a select number of academic courses are currently offered during 8-week sessions. A majority of these classes are being offered in online and hybrid course delivery styles.
A student should not take more than 10 credits during each 8-week session. Students wishing to register for more than 20 credits during a fall or spring semester will need the approval of their Advisor. This limitation is based on the expectation that each credit in which you are enrolled in during an 8-week session will require up to 5 hours per week to complete. Taking 10 credits during an 8-week session will require approximately 50 hours of time each week.
Yes, classes can be taken in an 8- and 16-week session simultaneously. Prior to registering for classes, be sure to determine the total number of hours you need each week to complete coursework.
For example, if you are taking 12 credits during a traditional 16-week semester, you can expect to spend approximately 30 hours on coursework each week during a 16-week period.
If you take 12 credits with 6 credits as part of the traditional 16-week semester and 6 credits as part of an 8-week session simultaneously, you can expect to spend approximately 45 hours on coursework per week during that 8-week period.
Financial aid is awarded based on the number of credit hours per semester. To maximize your federal financial aid, be sure to register for 8-week session classes prior to the Census Date specified for each semester. Contact email@example.com with questions.
