The School Year

The school year consists of two semesters of approximately fifteen weeks each, and a summer term of ten weeks with some courses offered in two five-week sessions. A student may graduate in three years by attending three summer terms in addition to three regular years.

Summer School. The University maintains a summer term with some courses offered in two five-week sessions. Courses are scheduled so a student may complete a semester of course work if enrolled in both summer school sessions.

New students and former students not currently enrolled who expect to attend summer school should consult the catalog section entitled “Admission and Expenses.

The summer term is considered equivalent to other semesters at Tennessee Technological University in regard to retention. The student on probation in summer is subject to the regular probation stipulations, including load and requirements for removing probation.

The official last day of the term is the Friday before graduation.
