Digital education courses are rigorous and academically challenging. They require a substantial commitment on the part of the student. In order to be successful, students must keep a schedule that commits 6-8 hours a week of quality work time throughout the 18 week semester. Students attempting to complete their course in a compressed time frame (less than 18 weeks per semester) should expect to commit more time each week. Students should work with the expectation that no course extensions will be granted.
