In a dynamic world experiencing rapid evolution, prospective learners should not need to wait several months or a year to learn about their admission status or start their desired program of study. Accordingly, we admit prospective learners into our programs of study at any time during the year as the long as the prospective learner meets the program's published admission requirements & the program has room for enrollment.
Student-controlled learning pace.
Our educational courses & programs are powered by a world-class online learning management system (LMS) that enable our students to complete their study at a pace that they help determine with the collaboration of faculty.
As a private, non-profit, student-centered & technology-powered school, we are able to offer our world-class educational courses & programs at tuition rates that are significantly lower than traditional brick-and-mortar colleges & universities.
