    Specific Considerations

    Courses offered vary from campus to campus depending upon the technology selected and student demand.

    The courses are designed to address a lot of material over a relatively short period of time. Students taking these courses should expect to have several hours of scheduled instruction per course each week for the duration of the delivery term. For those with no previous science education, more than one course in a subject area may be required.
