Upon request and approval by the instructor, some courses can be taken over two terms. However, payment must be received before starting the first term.

Expect to spend at least 2-3 hours working on the material per unit per week.
Our certificate courses are designed as intensive study. Most students find they spent at least 8 hours per week working on the material (via readings, audio-video presentations, online discussion forums, assignments, live sessions, quizzes and tests)
As part of their tuition, students enrolled in a certificate course also receive:
Please note that our instructors own the content of their courses (the COPYRIGHT). They have spent many hours preparing their materials, including written lectures, presentations, videos, and more. It is a violation of copyright and a lousy ethical decision to reuse these materials without the express written permission of the instructor.
$10 to $25 Paid webinars/workshops (generally 2-4 hours in length)
$100 to $295 focus seminars and workshops. These are courses that meet in an online conference call and generally do not have additional homework and may not have a course site with additional materials.
Students in non-certificate courses will receive a link to download a copy of the recorded classes. They can also participate in online focus groups or study groups by paying $10 per quarter.
Students are entered into their course site no later than the night before classes begin. New students will also be enrolled in an orientation course.
