How is the semester model changing?

Embedded within our new academic calendar will be two 7-week academic sessions: Session A and Session B. Instead of taking all of your classes across the normal 15-week period, you will be taking half of your courses during Session A and half of your courses during Session B. Over the course of the semester, you will still be completing the same number of courses. For most students, this means you will be taking two courses in Session A and two courses in Session B. This change will help students manage multiple modes of instruction in a smaller number of classes while significantly decreasing the number of students you will interact with in classes over the course of the week.

Unfortunately, moving to a model that better protects your health as a student is likely to cause some disruption to your schedule as it may mean that classes in which you were currently enrolled may no longer work with your schedule. We apologize for this inconvenience. If you need assistance with modifying your schedule, your academic advisor, a faculty member in your major, or a member of the Academic Life team will be happy to work with you to revise your schedule. We expect all schedules will be completed no later than July 3rd and you will be notified as soon as your new schedule is available online.
