Tysons Institute is a traditional institute where the academic year is divided into four quarters: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Each term is at least 10 weeks long in duration including the final exam week, with official recess after the end of each quarter. The Institute observes federally-observed holidays, in which case a make-up session will be scheduled. The Academic Calendar is subject to change without prior notice.
For Institute students to complete any program, they must complete a specified number of credit hours as required by their respective programs of study. International students are required to maintain a full course of study while enrolled at TI. A full course of study consists of at least two courses per quarter with the minimum of 18 hour of weekly hours. For example, a student taking two classes meets for 12 hours of contact hours (6 hours per course times 2) and 6 hours of lab (3 hours per course times 2), totaling 18 hours per week.
