Juggling four to five college courses at the same time isn’t for everyone – that’s why OTC created an eight-week schedule option for students. If you think you would benefit from taking fewer, more-intense courses, then OTC’s eight-week schedule might be for you.
When you follow OTC’s eight-week schedule, you can take two classes at once instead of four – while still remaining a full-time college student. You would complete four courses over the course of the 16-week semester, but you would do it by dividing them up so you only have to complete two college courses at a time – two in the first eight weeks and two in the second eight weeks.
Benefits of the eight-week format include:
- You can concentrate on just a couple of courses at time.
- You can still remain a full-time student (12 or more credit hours per semester).
- Eight-week courses are clustered so you can avoid big gaps in your day between classes.
