Current Semester Schedule

Semester Schedule

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign operates on a 16-week semester. City Scholars take courses in-person in Chicago and online in synchronous and asynchronous courses. In-person courses have a set meeting time and require attendance. Online courses do not typically have regular meeting times. This schedule is subject to occasional changes due to testing or professor/student time conflicts. Please work directly with your intern or City Scholars program staff if schedule conflicts occur due to classes.

The TE 440: Engineering City Scholars course is required for all City Scholars. The schedule for this course is provided below.

  • TE 440 is held in-person on Thursdays, 11 a.m. - 12:50 p.m. 
  • The TE 440 curriculum includes experiential learning through corporate and community partner information sessions and site visits.

  • Extra programming includes city outings and networking activities on weeknights, 5 - 7 p.m. and occasionally on Friday afternoons. Corporate partners and teams are welcome to join us.
