Calendar Format and Learning Objectives

Courses have the same learning objectives whether they meet for 15 or 7.5 weeks.

  • Students should expect to commit a minimum of 20 hours per week (including both in class and out of class time) for a 4 credit, half-term course.
  • Courses with clinical, laboratory, field work or other off campus modes of instruction may require a greater time commitment.
  • Instructors may require online participation during the weeks where breaks have been scheduled.

No Scheduled Final Examination Period

During the week of December 16-19, 7.5-week M-Th evening courses meet as regularly scheduled. Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday courses meet online, and St. Paul campus weekday (M-F) morning and afternoon classes meet online and/or during scheduled final examination time slot for full term courses (see Final Examinations Schedule).
