Frequently Asked Questions

Given all the closures from COVID-19, will that impact the upcoming May and August start dates for this program?

No. One of the benefits of online programs is that they are thoughtfully designed with remote students and faculty in mind. All online courses are still scheduled to begin on the planned start dates and are not impacted by COVID-19. 

Should I expect less availability from admissions advisors, faculty, or course delivery?

No. We are continuing to support students without disruption during this time. Those who are interested in enrolling in an online graduate program are able to discuss options with an Admissions Advisor via email, phone, text message or website chat. We encourage prospective students to use our admissions appointment scheduler to set up a time that is convenient for you. For current students, we fully expect that they will have normal access to faculty and course materials.

As the University complies with the governor’s executive order, we remain committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all of our students. For more university updates during the COVID-19 Stay at Home Order, please visit
