Advantages of 8 Week Classes

  • Empowers you to go from part-time to full-time status
    (in some cases)
  • Leads to faster degree completion
  • Financial aid eligible

How Do 8-Week Classes Differ from Full-Term (16-Week) Classes?

  • Fast-paced
  • Assignments are more concentrated
  • Students may complete a full-time course load (12 credits) while taking just 2 classes at a time, in two 8-week sessions over a 16-week period
  • Averages 3-4 lessons per week
  • Requires a concentrated level of focus and a more structured study regimen
