Ohio State University will soon begin a three-year-long change from quarters to semesters. University trustees signed off on the big job Friday.
The Ohio State University Senate voted yesterday in favor of switching from a quarter based academic year to a semester-based year. If the change is approved by the university’s board of trustees, Ohio State would be the last public institution of higher leaning in Ohio to decide to make the switch.
Friday is the final day of classes for the fall quarter at Ohio State. In a few years it could be the end of the fall semester. Governor Ted Strickland wants to more closely coordinate the offerings of the state’s public colleges and universities. That includes changing the few remaining institutions that use the quarter system to a semester-based academic calendar.
Several of Ohio’s larger public universities schedule classes on the quarter system rather than the semester system. Board of Regents Chancellor Eric Fingerhut says he wants a common academic calendar across the University system. That would mean quarters replaced by semesters.
