Time off/Interrupted Program Information
Life happens! We understand that students sometimes need to temporarily opt out of attending college. Unfortunately, staying current with industry demands often necessitates changes to our curriculum.
Students who leave the program for more than two semesters (Fall, Spring), will need approval from the Program Director to return and may be required to repeat courses or modify the original degree plan.
