You have two quarters to complete the gateway classes, required classes, and the mentorship project. Timing starts with the beginning of the first full quarter after your acceptance into the program. For example, if you apply in September, the first full quarter will begin in January, and you will have until June 30 to complete your classes. You can start taking any of the classes in the program before you are accepted. If you need more time or if you will be out of town or otherwise unable to take classes, you can request an extension by emailing [email protected].
