  • We are committed to offering a program that enables students to earn their degree within two years. Unfortunately, this means that we must sometimes schedule class during holidays. If attending class will limit your ability to celebrate a holiday of religious or cultural significance, please notify your course instructor and academic advisor in advance of your absence so accommodations can be made. Please note that students may miss no more than 6 hours of a 3 unit course.
