Course Selection

It is suggested that students take no more than one course at a time, particularly in their first semester with us. Students may take up to two courses each session (a total of four courses) in any one semester with permission. If you wish to take more than one course per 8 week session, please contact us at prior to registering.

It should be noted that taking two courses simultaneously is an intense full-time load. 

Please note the day and time each course meets. In no case may a student register for two courses that meet on the same day.

Tuition for online courses is $1008 for courses taken for graduate credit, $708 for courses audited for in-service contact hours. 

Session 1 (January 8 to March 3)

Session 2 (March 4 to April 27)

Tuition Options

Each course is offered for 2 semester credit hours. Courses may be taken for graduate credit or audited for in-service contact hours.
