Hi, I'm in need of a tutorial to make a 3D RPG for a class I'm in which I just need to make one level. I'm wanting something similar to the Final Fantasy series as want a battle system like the one use in those games but it doesn't need to be fancy. I only have 8 weeks to get it done so any help will be appreciated.

I am guessing you don't need to do it on iPhone, so I wouldn't say Penelope is the ideal tutorial to get started (It's a difficult tutorial with a lot of iPhone-specific lessons). As Koi stated, 8 weeks is simply not enough time to implement a unique game interface like that for a beginner.
What I would recommend doing is following the 2D Platform tutorial, and from there decide if you want to modify that to create the level for your assignment, or if you're feeling up to the task, modify what you learned here to make the "Dungeon Exploration" mode that those games feature.
If you are more interested in making a 3D dungeon exploration, than the 3D Platformer might be a better starting point, but it should be warned that it is not for beginners:
In case you aren't satisfied with the "official" tutorials, you can check out this Answer which has a ton of Tutorials. (None for exactly what you are looking for)
If you are having difficulty learning from these tutorials, I would suggest starting with the 3DBuzz tutorial which A.) Teaches you C# scripting B.) Is done in a conversational, easy going manner C.) Assumes you know absolutely nothing about Unity.

I just do not understand the lack of Final Fantasy esque RPG tutorials. x.x; I've been searching for a few days, and my programming professor recommended the burgzerg site to me, and it has a few things so far Im loving. But..its a 3d world. Im lookin for turn based....

I'd start with the Penelope tutorial; although with 8 weeks, that's quite a project deadline depending on your familiarity with the game engine.
