USU Online Course Types

Semester-Based Courses

Our normal, semester-based courses start and end with the rest of the USU traditional courses and follow all the semester dates, allowing you to take courses from home, but at the normal semester pace. To view the list of semester-based courses this summer, visit Course Search.

7-Week Sessions

These are similar to traditional, semester-based courses, but with a 7-week timeline. You are expected to log in daily, participate in online discussions, group work, and complete all assignments within specified dates. To view the list of 7-week courses this summer, visit Course Search.

Accelerated Courses

Accelerated online courses allow students to demonstrate proficiency with the subject matter and key course objectives, move quickly through the course, and finish at their own pace. Save time by earning college credits for what you already know. To view the list of accelerated courses this summer, visit Course Search.

Please note, financial aid and tuition deadlines still apply to all online courses.
