Semester Terms, Quarter Terms, Academic Year

Associate degree programs are normally completed in two academic years if taken on a full-time basis. Full-time is defined as a term credit load of at least 12 credits. An academic year consists of two semester terms (15-16 weeks) or three quarter terms (10-12 weeks) and is about 8-9 months in length. Due to the greater term length, semester programs typically consist of approximately 60 semester credits while quarter term programs consist of approximately 90 quarter credits. At Swedish Institute, the Nursing, Advanced Personal Training and Massage Therapy programs operate on a semester term basis. Clinical and Administrative Medical Assistant, Surgical Technologist, Medical Billing & Coding, and Clinical Medical Assistant programs operate on a quarter term basis.

Swedish Institute’s programs can be completed in two academic years with the exception of Nursing (which requires more credits than usual and one additional semester due to the nature of the program and Nursing Board curriculum requirements). Full-time students in other programs taking fewer than 15 credits per term, on average, may also need an additional term to complete the program. The Massage Therapy program, for example, has a five-semester scheduling option.

Students who pursue the program on a part-time basis (fewer than 12 credits) will require additional semester terms or quarter terms to complete.
