The program is offered in a Term Option.

Term Option:  In this pathway, students enroll in half-semester courses and complete each course within a predetermined time frame. This option is for students who wish to follow a more structured and traditional university schedule while taking advantage of accelerated sessions. Two half-term sessions will be available in Fall and Spring and one session will be available in Summer.

Students may start the program at the beginning of the Fall and Spring terms, at the beginning of the second half of the Fall or Spring terms, or in the summer semester.  This allows student to start the Term Option program several times per year, and enroll in half-semester session courses.  All coursework in the Term-Option Pathway must be completed within the half-semester session period. Tuition and fees in Term-Option enrollments may be refunded in accordance with normal university policies.
