Eight-Week Fall Semester
Eight-week semester courses allow you to focus more intently on a subject in a shorter timeframe. Most eight-week classes are hybrid (HY) courses which include a mix of regularly scheduled in-person classroom activities and online instructional activities, while some of the eight-week classes meet once or twice a week for a longer class period.

If you want to complete a course faster with greater concentration on a subject, eight-week semesters are a great option. Take two courses in each of the Spring 2023 eight-week semesters and you can still earn 12 credit hours without splitting your focus four ways at one time. 

The Spring 2023 eight-week semesters are Jan. 17-March 18 and March 20-May13. To identify the beginning and ending dates of the term, click on the “Meeting Times” column in the course schedule webpage.
