New 8-Week Courses

There are many benefits to taking an 8-Week class

This fall, get on the Fast Track here at Lone Star College-Montgomery. Research shows that students are much more successful in 8-week semesters. 8-Week Degree programs allow students to:

  • Prioritize: Students can focus their attention on two classes at a time to minimize workload.
  • Complete: A life event that causes students to drop classes won’t impact the number of courses dropped as heavily.
  • Capitalize: Longer meeting times over shorter semesters allows students more time to focus on difficult subjects.
  • Transfer: Taking Advantage of 8 Week semesters can allow students to transfer to the university of choice sooner.

The 8 Week degree program allows students to break up a 16 week semester into two 8 week semesters.  Students who take 12 hours of credit over the two 8 week semesters can still qualify for financial aid!  

There are many benefits to taking an 8-Week class:

  • Focus on taking one class at a time.
  • Retake classes and get back up to speed quickly.
  • Transfer to your university of choice sooner.
