We often receive questions from incoming students about Dallas International’s modular schedule. While most courses at Dallas International are 8 weeks long, our courses can last from 4-12 weeks. This makes for a unique modular schedule.
Each term (spring and fall) is about 5 months long and consists of 4 sessions. Each session is 4-8 weeks long. Dallas International also offers a 12 week summer term which overlaps with the last session of the spring term and the first session of the fall term. For specific start and end dates please check the Academic Calendar.
