Note:

These online graduate courses are structured in six-week sessions rather than 14-week semesters. Therefore, a student should expect to spend six hours a week on coursework for every course credit for one session. For example, if a student is signed up for two courses during a session and each course is worth four credits, that student should plan to spend 48 hours a week on coursework.

* 2 courses X (4 credit units X 6 hours a week) = 48 hours a week

Students must be registered appropriately, complete the course successfully, and pay the course assessment fee to obtain credit.

Estimated completion time: 1 – 1.5 years

*  Actual completion times will vary and may be higher, depending on full- or part-time course registration, units transferred, and time to complete other degree requirements.
