Course Descriptions

Prequalification Sequence

Students without a business background will be required to complete a sequence of self-paced, prequalification courses that do not bear credit and can be completed more quickly online than traditional eight-week courses. Students can be waived from these courses based on prior coursework if conditions are met. Challenge exams are available. Please contact an Admissions Advisor at (844) 823-1198 to learn more.
