September North American Program

The September North American Program is an alternate-weekend program serving primarily long-distance students. Classes are held on alternating weekends rather than once a week. Students travel to Evanston on Friday morning, classes are held Friday afternoon, all day Saturday, and Sunday morning.

Accommodations are provided at the Allen Center on Friday and Saturday nights. Tutorials and study group meetings take place during the weekend. Students in the North American Program take four courses over a 12-week quarter.

There are a total of six quarters in this two-year program. The program begins in September 2007 and ends in June 2009. This program also includes a weeklong Live-In session at the beginning of each academic year with a summer break between years.
