Flex Time

The flex-time program is offered to students whose outside obligations necessitate a more flexible program of study than is traditionally available.  All classes are still held during the daytime; however, hours may be planned according to personal needs and interests.   The pace is intended to be less strenuous than the regular program.   Course loads are optimally designed to result in graduation in four years rather than three with no fewer than 10 credits per semester.   The option to accelerate is also available to flex-time students after the first year of study.  Flex-time students are still required to pay full tuition.  Applicants to the flex-program must include a letter with their application explaining their individual circumstances.  The application process is otherwise the same.

Please note that flex-time is not a part-time program.
