Students are to take classes over the course of two years, if at all possible. Program admittance preference will be given to full-time applicants.

Presently, the courses are offered one time over the duration of two years before they can be offered again. Some classes are taught face-to-face, hybrid (i.e. collaborate and/or video conferencing), or online. Currently, the program is not an “online program” so students looking for a completely online program would not be able to take this program remotely. They would have to do some traveling, depending on the nature of the course and requirements of the given class at that time.

During the academic year (August to May), classes will generally be offered at 4 p.m. (PT)/5 p.m. (MT) or later. During the summer, course offerings will vary. Some may be condensed classes, half-days or full days. Classes will not necessarily occur on the same schedule as they do during the regular academic year.

Applicants and admitted students for each cohort will be asked to take the following classes in sequence provided below:
