The part time program takes a bit longer to complete, but it allows students to hold a full time job and study on the side. Students pay separately per course as they register. Credit may be given for equivalent courses taken at other schools (maximum 3 courses, proof required). The part time program can be completed in 1 to 3 years depending on the course load selected by each student.
