Looking Forward To 2020-2021

As we prepare for the 2020 Fall semester, please keep in mind the amended Academic Calendar, giving us the advantage of having as few students as possible on campus during peak flu season (mid-November through early February). The spring semester calendar introduces the opportunity for an innovative and creative three-week intensive course in January and reduces the student course load at one time.

For more information, please check out the Registrar‘s page.  We look forward to seeing all of our current students, as well as meeting all of our new students!
