How it Works

The self-paced track offers the convenience of rolling enrollment, so you can sign up and take classes year-round without having to wait for formal semester start and ends dates. Each course is 16-weeks long but is designed to be completed within 8-weeks. This means that all course documents will be made available on the student’s official start date, and students have the benefit of working at their own pace. General academic terms for academic record keeping are:

Spring Term: January1 – June 30                       Fall Term: July 1 – December 31


Self-Paced programs are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid.
