The School Year


Tennessee Technological University is organized on the semester basis. When the term hour or credit is used, it refers to a semester-hour credit. A semester hour is one (1) hour of class, recitation, or a two (2) or more hours of laboratory work, per week through one (1) semester of approximately 15 weeks. Laboratory hours per credit are determined by department or college.

The school year consists of two (2) semesters of approximately 15 weeks each, and a summer term of 10 weeks with some courses offered in two (2)  five-week sessions.

The summer term is considered equivalent to other semesters at Tennessee Technological University. The student on probation in summer is subject to the regular probation stipulations, including load and requirements for removing probation.
