Chamberlain College of Nursing operates on a student-centric calendar. Each year consists of two summer, two fall and two spring semesters. Each semester consists of 16 weeks of instruction and exams; classes will be scheduled in two eight-week sessions each semester.
An individual student’s calendar is based on his/her initial enrollment date into a degree seeking program or on the date studies are resumed following withdrawal from the College.
The two overlapping calendar cycles designate months corresponding to Chamberlain’s summer, fall and spring semesters. At the time a student initially starts courses, he/she is assigned a Student Centric Period (SCP) designator code of Cycle 1 or Cycle 2. The following chart outlines how months of the year correspond to a student’s spring, summer and fall semesters, based on the assigned SCP cycle:
Processes related to class scheduling, registration, tuition/fee assessment and end-of-term grade processing occur at the end of each session. Processes related to determining a student’s eligibility for financial aid and evaluating academic standing are conducted on a semester basis.
