Thank you Colin for an insightful blog. From my experience as a director for an adult evening program at a private non-profit, I was able to observe the academic calendar system of for-profits which usually includes very accelerated terms i.e. 5 - 6 weeks allowing students to complete one course at a time. One right after another resulting at least 3 courses or 9 hours completed in a traditional semester time frame. Thereby permitting such programs to assign full time status to their students. Nine hours is the golden number as it allows the school to maximize the financial aid award packages (mostly student loans)offered to students.

Enjoyed the info, this stuff is great keep it up!
