Credit for remedial courses may NOT be counted toward total credits required nor may remedial courses be counted as part of cognate requirements for the degree program.

Completion of degree in four summers presumes:

  • No remedial courses are required based on Graduate Admission Test
  • Each course has adequate enrollment to be offered
  • Course offerings do not significantly conflict

Credit load may be reduced by electing one course during the academic year.

Cognate and core courses are on a regular rotation sequence during both academic year and summer sessions.
