UW Oshkosh Calendar 2013-2014

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh calendar makes it possible for students to choose the type and length of course they prefer. The 17-week fall and spring semesters are divided into terms of fourteen, seven and three weeks. The majority of courses are offered during a 14-week period, but many are held for double hours during the first seven weeks and some for double hours during the second seven. Intensive courses are offered during the last three weeks of the term. This calendar is designed to allow students more choice in selecting their schedules and to encourage the development of the participation in new educational alternatives. Students thereby enrich their total university experience with opportunities to take more courses in a term, if they wish to, and dramatically shorten the time required for graduation.

Among the special features designed into the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh calendar are:

  • Choices of courses offered for fourteen-, seven- or three-week periods within each total seventeen-week fall and spring term.
  • Choices as to the number of courses to carry at any one time and still take a full load, during either a fourteen-week or full seventeen-week period.
  • Choices to begin and finish courses at different times during the year to conform to work schedules, vacation plans, field studies or other personal preferences.
  • An additional feature permits enrollment in an eight-week or either of two, four-week summer terms.
