What is the Mod System?
Beal College’s Mod System makes life easier!
Beal College is best known for its unique class scheduling system, or Mod System, where classes run half as long as semesters. Full-time students still complete the same number of college credits per year, but focus on fewer classes at a time.
- Students attend school year-round;
- 12-month school year is divided into 6 individual terms; each term is 8 weeks long;
- Full-time students take just 5-to-6 credits per Mod;
- Each course typically meets twice per week, for 2.5 hours each time it meets;
- Classes are scheduled Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday;
- No Friday classes for almost all majors!
- Many programs offer evening classes, in addition to day classes.
Because of the convenience of the Mod System, prospective students choose one of 6 start dates to begin their studies, rather than having to wait for the traditional semester.
