Next Steps

Important Note: If academic records are not sent by the Education Office they must be sent directly from the academic institution where you earned credit. Once we receive all your academic credentials and your file is complete, we will complete your academic program assessment. A personalized program plan will then be developed that will serve as your guide to degree completion. At this point, you need only select the option that best meets your needs and register for that option. This plan will be registered as a SOC Agreement. Registration forms will be provided to you upon enrollment along with directions for submission.

Registration Schedule
Online courses are structured on a 12-week timeframe. Guided Study courses are also structured on a 12-week timeframe. New terms beginning every month and registration is ongoing. To participate in the courses of your choice, you need to enroll and register no less than three weeks before the start date of your courses. Registration materials will be sent to you upon acceptance to the program.
