OUR FORMULA:

BUILT FOR SPEED

Attend classes year-round, Monday through Friday, for 12 quarters until you victoriously cross the finish line at graduation. Typically, students are enrolled in three to four courses each sprint and have breaks throughout the day to study. At the end of each quarter, you'll catch your breath with a two- to three-week vacation. 

Keep this pace for 3 years to earn 180 credits and a bachelor's degree.

10-WEEK
SPRINT SYSTEM

To help students better handle their rigorous course schedules, each of our 10-week quarters is divided into two, five-week sections - we call them sprints.

You'll take two sprints per quarter for 12 quarters. Each sprint is designed to provide a maximum complement of courses, labs, and projects that will help you move systematically through our rigorous program. Occasionally, a course will last for the entire quarter or two sprints. 

Your Advocate and Academic Advisor will work closely with you to ensure you are on track for graduation.
