Phoenix has four 11-week terms. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

Registration is done in two stages. The first two weeks are done exclusively through Student Services. These first two weeks are for both Virtual Campus courses as well as local Phoenix courses. Student who still owe money or have not completed all requirements for admission (such as handing in all transcripts, filling out all forms, etc,) are not able to register. The third week of regular registration may be completed at one of the local Phoenix campus sites--either Central Park Forest in Phoenix or at Luke AFB. Students have a greater likelihood of receiving the courses they desire by registering as early as possible.

Registration start dates are as follows: Winter 2014-2015 is October 21; Spring 2015 is February 2; and Summer 2015-May 4.
