What is the difference in the courses offered at the Fort Campbell Center and the
Clarksville (Main) APSU campus?
- All courses offered at the Fort Campbell Center, both on-line and on-ground are scheduled on an accelerated 8 week semester format, as opposed to the 15 week semester format for most courses on the Clarksville campus. Most FCC on-ground classes meet 2.5 hours either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday, with a full evening schedule. Occasionally, some classes also meet on Friday or Saturday. The content and quality of the courses offered at the FCC is no different from those offered on the Clarksville APSU campus.
