When are classes?

Our program is arranged in a cohort structure with a new group of students admitted each fall, spring, and summer semester. Each cohort meets virtually on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters. 

Summer terms call for concentrated meeting periods to allow educators to include vacation time in their calendars.
