The 4-1-4 at CSU Stanislaus

California State University, Stanislaus was the first public, four-year university in California to adopt a 4‑1‑4 academic calendar. Now in its 30th year, it is well received by students and faculty. The 4-1-4 academic year consists of two 13-week semesters and a month-long winter term. Fall semester ends before the holiday break and spring semester finishes in late May or early June. A typical student load is four courses in the fall, one course during winter term, and four courses in the spring—hence “fourone-four.”

Although exactly equivalent to traditional semester or quarter programs in terms of instructional weeks (30), credit units earned, teaching loads, and registration fees, the structure of the 4-1-4 year provides greater opportunities for an innovative and challenging curriculum. The unique dimension of 4-1-4 is the winter term in which students and faculty concentrate on one course or project. To stimulate academic innovation and encourage students to explore unfamiliar disciplines, many winter term courses and projects are graded on a Credit/No Credit basis.

Winter term provides an unusual chance for intensive pursuit of a single subject. This concentration of time, resources, and energy constitutes a new intellectual experience for most undergraduates.
