Program Format

Candidates are enrolled in 12-16 semester credit hours each fall/spring semester. About half of the learning each semester comes from paid work at their school. Enrollment is completed by the Registrar's Office. Courses are scheduled two nights a week live on Zoom. Candidates select either a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule for the semester. Most classes begin around 6pm or 8pm at night, lasting from one and a half to two hours each night. Candidates are required to average 15 hours per week in an academic classroom setting each semester for the first three years enrolled in the degree program.  The final year/two semesters is the Clinical Year, and will require 25 hours a week in an academic classroom setting. Those hours will be reported by the candidate and approved by a school system supervisor.
