Students enrolling in a Campus Emphasis Cohort attend classes on our Denton campus 7-8 times each semester. The remainder of their learning is completed online. During the Fall and Spring semesters, these courses meet on weeknights from 5:30-8:20 p.m. Summer courses are taught with a three week intensive schedule, meeting from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Students typically enroll in one course in June and one course in July, for a total of six weeks each summer. A new cohort begins each spring.
