Course/Program Delivery Model

This program is offered in a Competency Based Education (CBE) format. It is divided into several payment periods consisting of 10-weeks each, except for the final one which is variable in length. This allows students to accelerate and complete as many courses as they can within each of those time periods while the tuition and fees remain fixed. Students will be expected to invest a minimum of 16 to 24 hours per week on coursework and will enroll in each course according to the established sequence in the catalog.

Students who only need one or more courses for purposes other than earning a certificate for a full program of study may enroll for Personalized Professional Training (PPT) courses, available in select program areas.

Students receiving Federal Financial Aid or VA funding please contact your academic advisor for specific information regarding eligibility.
