Sessions Instead of Semesters - Online or On Campus

Adult Degree Program students take courses in sessions versus the traditional 16-week semesters. There are 6 sessions per year, and each session is 8 weeks long. There are 2 sessions per 16-week semester, therefore, Adult Degree Program students can complete 12 credits per academic semester. Seton Hill also offers summer sessions. Students have the option to take classes on campus on Saturday through the 8-week format, or in the evening through the 16-week format.
