The January Term is a great opportunity for students to earn up to three credits in 10 class days. J-Term courses are designed to help students catch up or get ahead and graduate early. Courses are offered on-campus, online and abroad to give maximum flexibility and convenience.
On-campus courses at Lake Shore Campus will meet daily for about 4 hours a day. Online courses will have daily synchronous sessions of certain duration depending on the class. Students are expected to spend between 6 to 10 hours a day studying, undergoing a field experience, or engaged in projects. A J-Term class is a full-time, immersive study experience that provides the benefit for students to focus solely on one course. Students are urged to discuss with their academic or faculty advisor whether a J-Term course is right for them.
J-Term 2014 begins on December 30, 2013 and ends on January 11, 2014. Classes will not be held on Tuesday, December 31, 2013, Wednesday, January 1, 2014 (University holidays) or Sunday, January 5, 2014. Classes will be held on Saturday, January 4th and January 11th.
Students should refer to luc.edu/core to see how courses satisfy Core requirements.
