7-one-7 Format at SCEUC
Student Success is very important to STLCC.
Student success - your success - is very important to us. That is why South County offers its classes and programming in a unique format we call "7-one-7."
The 7-one-7 format splits the traditional semester into two seven-week terms, separated by a one-week break. So, instead of taking four courses at the same time, you take two courses for seven weeks, take a break, and then take your next two courses for seven weeks. You still complete a full course load in one semester, but you only have to juggle two courses—and the homework, reading and research that goes along with them—at a time.
Studies have shown that this format works. Students who take classes in a compressed format report having more opportunity for one-on-one time with their professors and a more positive experience overall with their courses. They also have a higher success rate—which means more completed courses and higher grades—than students in a traditional semester.
And, if you need to take developmental courses before beginning credit classes, or have a lot of prerequisites to take, the 7-one-7 format can get you up to speed and moving forward that much faster.
