SPRING QUARTER TARGET START: APRIL 13, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, the Spring ’20 Quarter, which was scheduled to start on March 30, 2020, has been delayed at least two weeks. The tentative starting date is Monday, April 13, 2020. This date is our goal to resume classes, as to not disrupt your education any more than necessary. We are continually monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and making decisions based on governmental guidelines and safety precautions. Thank you for your patience. Please be safe.
WE’RE STILL AVAILABLE TO ASSIST YOU!
During the COVID-19 Stay-at-Home period, we want you to know we’re still available to assist you with the admissions and financial aid processes. Your education and future is important to us, as is your safety. So while the school is closed per governor’s orders, we are still busy working remotely with students and those interested in learning about our programs.

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING SPRING ’20 QUARTER
We want to stress that the health and safety of our staff, students, and guests is our primary focus. We are working week-to-week on operational decisions and have an important update. Although the 3/30/2020 start is highly unlikely to begin as scheduled, we remain hopeful the situation will turn around and we will be able to designate an alternative start date soon. We are keeping our finger on the pulse as we receive updates from the government and other regulatory agencies. Weekly updates will be sent out to keep you informed.
For those new students who enrolled for the Spring 2020 quarter, if you have any questions, please contact your admission representative.
