LLCC expands eight-week course offerings

SPRINGFIELD — In addition to traditional 16-week classes, Lincoln Land Community College is expanding the number of eight-week classes offered. They provide the same content, number of credits, services and support as 16-week classes, but on a different schedule.

“Eight-week classes allow students to focus on fewer classes at a time,” explains Alex Berry, director of student success. “A student may traditionally take five classes at the same time for 16 weeks. With eight-week classes, they can take those same five classes, but only focus on two for the first eight weeks and then three the next eight weeks.”

Many new eight-week courses are being offered on the Springfield campus and online. Most classes this fall at LLCC Outreach Centers in Taylorville, Litchfield and Jacksonville are being offered in eight-week sessions.
