Evening classes. 8-week terms.
Oglethorpe University uses a semester system, and all courses in the evening are 8 weeks long. This allows adult degree students to maintain a full-time course load while only taking two classes at a time. 4-Credit classes mean that students take 1/3 fewer classes to get their degree, when compared to other colleges.
Classes are held on either Monday & Wednesday, or Tuesday & Thursday at two time slots: 6:00-8:10 PM and 8:20-10:30 PM.
Adult degree program students are not limited to evening classes and may also take any of the daytime classes offered at Oglethorpe as their personal schedule permits.

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.
