You can also view our full FAQ page.

When do you expect to reopen the D.C. campus?

As of March 16, 2020, all of our campuses have transitioned from in-person to remote instruction. Based on guidance received from local and national governmental authorities, remote instruction is scheduled to last through at least the date listed on our course return calendar. We continue to monitor the situation in each of our campus cities, and will regularly update our on-campus status at the link above.

What’s the difference between the D.C. virtual campus courses and Online courses?

Studying on our virtual campus is your fastest path to graduation for our programs. The time commitment for virtual campus courses is M-F, 9am-6pm for 12-15 weeks, depending on your program. You’ll learn in sync with your classmates and benefit from a smaller student-to-instructor ratio. Virtual campus days are structured around live lectures, check-ins and group work, utilizing tools like Zoom and Slack to virtually collaborate with your classmates and instructors.

Our Online courses can take anywhere between 5 months and 15 months to complete, depending on your selected pace. You can set your own study hours and cadence to hit deadlines, and weekly lectures and office hours are recorded if you can’t tune in live. When you need help, our Ask-a-Question feature is staffed by our educational team 18 hours a day. You’ll also schedule weekly check-ins with your instructor.
