When does the program start? Can I begin anytime?
- Most programs begin each year in Fall Quarter which is typically the first or second week of September. Some programs, such as the Teacher Preparation Programs and the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Programs, begin in the Summer Quarter (early June). On rare occasions, students can begin their studies in a different quarter, however, this is arranged on a case-by-case basis only. Students should contact the Morgridge Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org to explore this option.
What does full-time enrollment mean?
- Full-time enrollment status in a graduate program is achieved by taking a minimum of 8 credit hours per quarter. However, specific funding may require a student to complete 9 credit hours per quarter.
Are classes offered online?
- The Certificate and MA programs are offered in two modalities: online and hybrid. In the online modality, classes meet 6-8 evenings or Saturdays per quarter via Zoom. In the hybrid modality, classes meet 6-8 evenings or Saturdays per quarter on campus.
How many students are in a typical class?
- Our average class size is 8-10 students. Courses in the certificate program may have up to 20 students.
