Take charge of your class schedule! Barton Online provides a learning platform that puts you in charge of scheduling. Courses are scheduled in weekly blocks; you determine the time of day and the days of the week that you will attend class to complete the required course work by the weekly due dates put forth by the instructor. 

Barton Online offers courses over fifteen sessions in four different time frames: 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 16 weeks, and a four-week intersession in the Spring and Fall.   Barton Online does not have a minimum class size and classes never cancel because of low enrollment.

Four-week intersession course content and rigor are comparable to those of other semesters and that the short term requires intensive study. For that reason, students are permitted to enroll for only two courses. 

Enroll in the Barton Online course of your choice today! View the Barton Online Academic Calendar for further dates and session information.
