The program begins in Fall 2018 quarter (November 1, 2018 – December 14, 2018). However, the first five weeks of classes are conducted online; there are no classes taught on campus during that time. Therefore, any visas required by international students would not need to start until January 2019 when campus based classes begin.
Campus-based classes begin in the Winter 2019 quarter (January 7, 2019 – March 22, 2019), continue through the Spring 2019 quarter (April 1, 2019 – June 14, 2019), followed by a summer internship (July-August, 2019, exact dates TBD). The final segment of the program begins in the Fall 2019 quarter (September 26, 2019 – December 13, 2019). During the Fall 2019 quarter, international students must continue to take campus-based classes. Upon successful completion of all requirements, students graduate from the program in December 2019.
Please note: Students cannot accelerate their studies and graduate early. This is a 13-month, full-time program, and the courses are only offered once per year.
