Minimester Delivery Method

Minimesters provide the same amount of instruction as a traditional section; however, minimester sections meet half the time. Minimester meet for eight weeks in the Fall and Spring semesters and five weeks in the Summer term. Minimesters that begin at the beginning of the semester or term are referred to as 1st half minimesters. Minimesters that begin at the halfway point of the semester or term are referred to as 2nd half minimesters.

If a section is both a minimester and a non-traditional class, then the minimester section number is not used. Instead, the non-traditional delivery method section number is used with a “1″ or “2″ added to the end. Minimesters that occur at the beginning of the traditional semester or term end with a “1″. Minimesters that occur at the halfway point  of the traditional semester or term end with a “2″. (e.g. The section number 4501 would be used for an internet class meeting during the first half of the semester. The section number 4152 would be used for an evening hybrid class on South Campus meeting the second half of the semester.)
