Yes, students interested in the BAS-OLTM program must complete an application and
be accepted into the program. All applicants will receive a letter indicating if they
have been accepted into the program after the deadline to apply has passed.
No, the BAS-OLTM program is a cohort model and we offer new cohorts every academic
year in summer/fall. As long as there is a demand, both full and part-time options
will be available annually. Applications open in December and are accepted through
May 1st. Late applications may be accepted based on circumstance and space availability.
We recommend applying early in order to confirm that required courses have been completed.
All of the program courses are offered online, but not during every quarter. Online
courses are ideal for those requireing flexible schedules. Please connect with an
advisor to determine ideal course terms if you need only online classes.
Hybrid courses (on-campus) are offered during fall, winter, and spring. Classes meet
one evening per week (either on Tuesdays or Thursdays depending on your cohort), and
your on-campus schedule will remain the same for the 2 years that you are in the program.
Most students complete the full-time program in six quarters. Full-time students take
3 classes per quarter for a total of 15 credits per quarter. The part-time cohort
takes nine quarters to complete and continues through summer quarters. Part-time cohorts
complete 10 credits per quarter.
Each course requires an average of 15 hours per week for class time, homework, studying,
etc. Since you will be taking three classes per quarter, you should set aside an average
of 45 hours per week for school.
