Online Accelerated Terms
Accelerated terms are parts of the standard semester term.
- Accelerated terms are referred to as 'parts-of-term’ (POT).
- During Fall & Spring semester, parts-of-term are 8 weeks of instruction. Parts of term are designated at 1H (1st Half) and 2H (2nd Half), resulting in 2 sessions per semester.
- During the Summer semester, parts-of-term are 6 weeks of instruction, designated as Summer A and B.
Note to Current Students*
The designated payment deadlines for the second part of each term (Fall 2H, Spring 2H, and Summer B) are applicable to students who are only registering for the second part of the term. For students taking courses in both parts-of-term (1H and 2H / Summer A and Summer B), tuition for all registered courses is due by the 1H / Summer A payment deadline. If a student registers for 1H / Summer A classes and pays for the classes by the 1H / Summer A payment deadline, and then registers for 2H / Summer B classes afterward, the balance for the 2H /Summer B classes is due immediately.
The Academic Calendar includes all important dates for accelerated terms.
