Eight Week Terms Information and Guidelines

To facilitate the diverse scheduling needs of its students, Fayetteville State University offers classes in the evenings and on Saturdays during five eight-week terms per academic year. Terms I and II coincide with the fall semester; Terms III and IV coincide with the spring semester; and Term V coincides with summer session (see "Academic Calendars" for specific Eight-Week Term dates).

Requirements that apply exclusively to eight-week classes are delineated below. Classes taught in eight-week terms are the same in content, quality, and requirements as classes taught in the regular sixteen-week semester. During the fall and spring semesters, students may enroll in eight-week term classes only, or simultaneously in eight-week and regular semester courses.
