Evening classes. 8-week terms.
Oglethorpe University uses a semester system, and all courses are 8 weeks long. This allows adult degree students to maintain a full-time course load while only taking two classes at a time.
Most classes are 4 credits each and are offered on either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday evenings. You may also choose from any of our daytime courses offered during the week (day courses are offered over 16 weeks). However, adult degree students can fulfill all of their degree requirements in evening classes.
View the current schedule in our online OASIS registration system (log-in as a guest).
Out of class activities
Each class will meet one time per semester on an advertised Saturday to take the midterm exam. Additionally, each course will include 12.5 hours of active learning outside of class, as determined by your professor.
