Full-Time IMC Students

Full-time students typically take four courses through the fall and spring with two in each round and complete two courses over the summer with one in each round. Full-time students who begin in the Fall are scheduled to complete their degree program the following summer.

The IMC program is offered online which allows students to attend full-time in an asynchronous format to complete classes when it's convenient and allowing students to continue their careers.

Part-Time IMC Students

Part-time students typically follow a smaller course load each semester taking two courses in the Fall and Spring with one in each round and one course in the summer of each year of their degree program in whichever round they choose. Part-time students are scheduled to complete their program in two years.

The part-time program is designed to fit the needs of working professionals who want to advance their career while maintaining their working status.
