Schedule of Courses

Olivet College has been approved by Michigan to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements. NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education. At this time, California and Massachusetts are not SARA approved states, consequently we will not be accepting students that live in those states until further notice or approval is granted.


All courses will be offered during a standard 15-week semester in fall and spring, with an 8-week term in the summer. The courses will be held online.
