What’s the schedule like? Most on-campus courses will meet daily (Monday-Friday) for 90 minutes. Between classes, study time, and events with new friends, you’ll be actively engaged on campus — and busy. Great practice for the fall semester! Online courses will require meeting various deadlines throughout the module, but students are responsible for their own pace - we will be here if you experience any difficulty.
