Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long are online classes?
    Online classes are eight weeks long. Most students take two to three classes at a time. There are two sessions in the Fall and Spring semesters and one compressed Summer session.
  • How long will it take for me to earn my degree?
    Students are required to complete the majority of their general education courses before starting cohort courses in the major. The cohorts are designed so that students can complete their major coursework in three semesters and one summer session. If students enter the program with a two year degree, they typically can complete their bachelor’s degree in 18 months.
  • Am I required to be online at a certain time?
    Classes are asynchronous – you do not have to log on and complete work during a certain time. Most professors will have due dates each week for discussion form posts and assignments.
