What is a trimester?

At CSU-Global, we divide the calendar year into three separate blocks called trimesters. The three trimesters are Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each trimester is approximately 16-weeks long and include three, 8 week terms - two back to back terms and one overlapping term.

Though there is not a Summer trimester, the Spring and Fall trimesters do cover the summer months, so students are able to attend courses year-round.
