Class Schedule Guide

◼︎ Spring 2019

Because enrollment numbers are constantly changing during enrollment period, accurate class enrollment (and whether a class is open or full) can only be found via the real-time information in SOAR.

To search for a class you are interested in, log in to your SOAR account and from your Student Center, go to Classes and Enrollment > Add a Class > Search.

 

Intersession Classes (January 3–January 23, 2019)

Intersessions occur before the start of regular session classes and give students that chance to take one class and get a jump start on the semester ahead. The classes are taught in an intensive format, with the enter semester’s worth of material covered in roughly three weeks. For a 3 credit-hour face-to-face course, for example, this means meeting every day for roughly three hours and doing a considerable amount of work outside of class. The entire semester is done at the end of the session. Because of the immersive nature of the intersession experience, students may only take a maximum of four credit hours. Intersession class tuition is considered a part of the following semester as long as you do not go over your 19-hour limit. For example, a 3-hour January intersession is included in your spring tuition if you take 16 credit hours in the regular session (in addition to the intersession). Intersession courses do, however, carry an additional $200/hour course fee.  Important note: For the January 2019 intersession, students who are living on campus in spring 2019 may move in early and the intersession time period is covered by their housing and meal plans at no extra charge!

Regular Full Term Classes (January 24 - May 9, 2019)

The “regular” session refers to the full fall semester, which is roughly 15 weeks long. You will be in class about one hour a week for every credit hour you are earning, so a 3-credit hour class meetings for three hours each week. Some classes meet three days a week, some meet two days a week, and some meet only once, so the meeting periods will vary. Be sure to check SOAR carefully for the meeting times when you plan your schedule.

8WK 1 Classes (January 24 - March 7, 2019)

First half-term (“Session 1” or “8WK1”) classes are the same credit and amount of work as a regular session class, but done in half the time. Because of the compressed time frame, students can earn credits more quickly. Classes meet twice as many hours in a week as a regular session class. For example, a 3-credit class will meet six hours a week from the beginning of the semester through the halfway point, and then they are finished, leaving more room in your week’s schedule for the rest of the term.  If the course is online, the amount of work expected will be twice as much as in a full semester class, as the class must be completed in half the time.

8WK 2 Classes (March 19 - May 1, 2019)

Second half-term (“Session 2” or “8WK2”) classes are the same credit and amount of work as a regular session class, but done in half the time. This session starts in the middle of the term and goes until the end of the semester. Because it starts then, it can be a good option for students who need to add a class to stay on track to earn their 15 hours for the term. Students can also take a first half-term and a second half-term class rather than two full-term classes, if they like the intensity of focusing on a fewer number of courses at a time.  Classes meet twice as many hours in a week as a regular session class. For example, a 3-credit class will meet six hours a week. If the course is online, the amount of work expected will be twice as much as in a full semester class, as the class must be completed in half the time
