Augustana follows a 4-1-4 academic calendar, which means that between the 15-week fall and spring semesters, students have a four-week Interim session during January.
The J-Term is designed to be a time of curricular exploration and enrichment for students, giving them the opportunity to take advantage of travel courses, internships, special one-time topics courses, and campus exchange programs, in addition to liberal arts core courses and those specific to their major.
During J-Term, many different courses are available for Augustana students. The Registrar's Office provides detailed J-Term course schedules. Registration for Interim occurs concurrently with spring registration.
