Option of shorter online courses gaining popularity at Fort Hays State - Hays Daily News

Eight-week courses are gaining popularity at Fort Hays State and are available in a broad range of programs through the university’s Department of Advanced Education Programs, which offer core courses across several programs. Instead of enrolling in a traditional 16-week course in time for the fall and spring semester start dates, online students can now choose from several other dates to enroll in the same course that is completed in half the time. “These offerings are being developed to meet the needs of the adult students who are looking for both an expedited timeline to complete their degree and/or have decided to go to school after one of the three traditional start dates,” said Dennis King, assistant vice president for student affairs. “The idea is to offer something for the adult student who presses to move through their program at a little faster pace.” http://www.hdnews.net/press_releases/option-of-shorter-online-courses-gaining-popularity-at-fort-hays/article_10df9398-492a-5831-94f2-0916bfc25a00.html
