Hiram College

Academic Calendar

The Weekend College has a distinctive semester calendar that enables adult students to successfully manage the academic workload.

Each 16-week semester is divided into two eight-week terms. Classes meet on campus every other weekend, giving the busy adult learner two weeks between class meetings to complete their online assignments and balance work, family and schoolwork. Online courses are also available in two eight-week sessions offered each semester.

Take a combination of blended and online courses to build a schedule that makes sense for you and allows you to stay on track with your degree.
