Online Programs: Our online programs are positioned to support students’ learning wherever they are. These programs remain open, with weekly live classes held in Zoom classrooms. Students are able to meet with one another and professors online at any time, and our faculty in these programs are trained to teach effectively in this online environment.

Ongoing Support Services: At this time, our admission and student support teams remain active and available. You can reach out at any time to speak with a counselor on either of these teams to ask any questions you have. 

In-Person Experiences: Hands-on, in-person learning is a cornerstone of our online programs. We are monitoring the situation and evaluating in-person experiences on a program-by-program basis.  The safety of our students and faculty is of utmost importance. We remain committed to ensuring students receive the training they need to be successful in their chosen field.
