How long does it take to finish?

The length of time required to finish a degree depends on how many credits a student takes each semester. The academic year consists of a fall and spring semester. In addition, students have the option of taking summer courses though summer course offerings are limited. Taking summer courses may speed the completion of coursework, however, depending on the degree program and course offerings it may not shorten the length of time necessary to complete the degree. Generally, full-time students take at least 12 credits (3-4 courses) each semester while part-time students take a minimum of 6 credits.
