What would my schedule look like if I took this Friday-only program?

Classes essentially meet every other Friday. The schedule is designed so that one has a full schedule on Fridays throughout the sixteen-week semester. One Friday a student will have one set of classes, and the next Friday will offer another set of classes.

Most of the classes are set up in a hybrid format which basically allows students to do some work independently at their convenience outside of the classroom on the computer via Blackboard, and optimizes their time on campus. The schedule also provides some offerings exclusively online.

When and where are classes available?

These Friday-only classes are available at both North and South Campuses and online. The fall semester begins on Monday, August 18, 2014.
