Designed for Working Students & Commuters

You'll appreciate the flexibility of our class schedules. Many students are able to arrange their classes so they only have to come to campus once a week or—at the most—twice. And all of our courses are offered in a two-session semester format with each semester comprised of two seven-week sessions. As a result, full-time students take only two or three classes during each session, so they can be very focused in their learning.
