Understanding the Sessions

Maranatha Online now has four sessions per semester, all starting on a Tuesday and ending on a Saturday.

Online Sessions

  • The A Session begins on a Tuesday and ends eight Saturdays later (8 weeks)
  • The B Session begins on the Tuesday after the end of the A Session and ends eight Saturdays later (8 weeks)
  • The C Session begins two Tuesdays after the start of the A Session and ends twelve Saturdays later (12 weeks)
  • The D Session begins on the same Tuesday as the A Session and ends sixteen Saturdays later (16 weeks)

Students may wonder why there are C and D Sessions. Certain classes, due to the content and type of material, do not fit well into an 8-week block. For example, most of the courses in the D Sessions are 4-5 credits, reflecting significantly more work than the standard 3-credit classes.
