Note: The IUP academic year has two 16-week semesters; each semester is divided into two eight-week "modules" with different classes, textbooks and teachers in each module.

The summer session lasts eight weeks, with 40 days of classes.

Every eight-week module has 80–160 hours of classroom language instruction, depending on course assignments.
