Health Sciences courses may consist of one term or one or more session term codes as determined by the faculty of each School. Terms are the traditional academic periods of September to December (Fall) and January to May (Spring); session codes are academic periods of approximately 5 weeks in length.
For registration purposes, a number designates a single session code, for example, Module 1 is expressed as session code 1. A letter designates a series of sessions, i.e., the sequence of sessions 1, 2 and 3 is expressed as session code G. Letters are also used to designate term codes: fall term code is A; spring term code is B. Generally, the sequence of sessions 1, 2 and 3 (session code G) is comparable to the fall term; sessions 4, 5, 6 and 7 (session code T) corresponds to the spring term.
The Health Sciences Bulletin lists the courses offered by each School. In addition, students are informed by their School of the academic period and, in the case of session courses, the number of sessions required for each course.
Terms are used for most courses in the West Campus, the School of Social Welfare and the graduate program in the School of Health Technology and Management, as well as for most courses in the Schools of Dental Medicine, Medicine and Nursing. Session codes are used for courses in the undergraduate programs of the School of Health Technology and Management and for some basic science courses.
Session dates, including the beginning and ending dates, add/drop periods and the session codes required for course registration are contained in the Table of Session Dates within each calendar provided below.
