More Choices. More Opportunities with Our Academic Calendar.

Seize New Possibilities at the Erie Campus

Four-year and graduate programs at the Erie campus consist of two 14-week sessions, and a one-month January term, as of Fall 2013. The new 4-1-4 term system is a change from the University's prior trimester academic year.

Extra Advantages of a January Term

The January term offers exciting opportunities for students in the School of Health Professions and Public Health. Hands-on, engaged learning opportunities abound.

Internships, study abroad, research projects, and in-depth studies with one focus will give students an extra edge in hands-on experience. Exploration of cutting-edge issues is now more possible.

Incoming students are required to complete 121 credits for four-year degrees, and generally 10 courses a year.
