General Information Blended Accelerated Sessions

Blended Accelerated classes include seven in-class sessions, one night per week, plus an online educational component.

Blended accelerated courses combine the value of classroom presentation and discussion with the convenience of online learning. Each blended course consists of 7 classes (3 hours and 15 minutes) on site and an online component.

Both portions of the blended course consist of assignments, readings, research, group work and/or participation in an online or in-class discussion. The blended course is designed in a participatory format and is led by experienced faculty/practitioners. As with every course, students are encouraged to relate their work experience to the course topics in order to enhance their learning experience.

Online Courses

Online courses are offered in 7- and 15-week formats. Courses that run for 15 weeks (Session III) have one start date, which is usually the first day of the semester. Sevenweek online courses begin on the first day of the session in which they are offered (Session I or II).

All online courses have regular deadlines for submitting work, just as in a traditional or hybrid course. In addition, all undergraduate online courses require a minimum of 2 proctored exams and all graduate online courses include at least 1 proctored exam.* * NOTE: Capstone courses require students to work in virtual teams and do not require proctored exams.
