Flex Terms

You can complete TWO courses in the time it takes to finish one traditional course! At seven weeks, the terms are half as long as the traditional 14-week semester. This means students can complete two courses in the time it takes to finish one traditional course.

Students enrolled in the shortened terms also have the option of completing a two-course sequence within a single term. For example, they can complete Accounting 1 and 2 over the course of the two Flex Terms.
