Classes meet throughout the week generally starting at 8:00 a.m. and finishing at 3:40 p.m. IBCS also offers several courses on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings during the fall and spring semesters. Summer term classes last from 2-4 hours per day and provide the same amount of instruction and credit hours as a regular 15-week class.
Graduate courses are offered during all four terms. Courses offered in the summer are generally offered as one to three-week block courses. Winter term courses are generally offered as one or two-week block courses.
Undergraduate classes are offered in two regular semesters: fall and spring. The winter term includes several required classes that are not offered at any other time, so students should be prepared to attend at least two winter terms during their academic careers at IBCS. The summer term includes classes offered during regular semesters; summer term allows students to make up classes they’ve missed or to take classes earlier in their program to lighten the regular semester load.
