What exactly are seven-week courses?
Traditional semester classes are scheduled for a 16-week period. Seven-week courses (during either the first or second seven weeks of a semester) are offered in both the fall and spring semesters and are credit-bearing courses.
Why should an seven-week course be taken?

Seven-week courses offer many benefits:

  • More flexibility in scheduling throughout the semester, including online options;
  • Helping you stay on track towards graduation and with your scholarship hours (particularly for students who withdrew (W) from a course earlier in the semester); and
  • Align additional academic content into your current class schedule, such as practicums, co-ops, internships, and online courses.
