Academic Calendar

The academic calendar consists of 10-week terms in fall, spring, winter, and summer. In addition, intensive classes are offered in summer and fall terms.
Daybreak University operates under a quarter hour system. For all courses bearing academic credit, “one quarter hour of credit” is, at a minimum,
one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and two hours of out-of-class student work each week for approximately ten to twelve weeks.
For example, a 4.5 quarter-credit course would require at a minimum 45 hours of academic engagement and 90 hours of preparation for a tota
of 135 hours. A credit hour is assumed to be a 50-minute (not 60-minute) period. These dates are subject to change.
