Accelerated Courses Add & Drop Timeline

Educational Leadership, Evaluation and Organizational Development (ELEOD) 8-WEEK COURSES

Add/Drop & Refund Timeline

What you need to know about taking an accelerated course:

  • The content, instruction, and learning outcomes are the same as a 16 week course.
  • Students who received federal financial aid must be enrolled for the entire 16 weeks, meaning that if you take accelerated courses during only the first half of the semester you may jeopardize your eligibility for federal aid. Consult the Student Financial Aid Office (finaid@louisville.edu)
  • Grades for first half of term classes will not be officially posted on your transcript until the end of the regular academic semester, but you may receive information about your grade from your instructor following the conclusion of a first half of term class.
  • The withdrawal and drop/add schedules for accelerated courses are different than for 16 week classes. See table below for specific dates.
  • 8-week course students do not observe holidays or breaks for academic study/learning purposes (i.e., uninterrupted 37+ days of study)
  • 8-week course students do observe holidays for administrative purposes (i.e., holiday impacts adding/dropping)
