If you want to learn more about the interim break or May programs the primary advising will be with the faculty leader. You can start an application and are not required to have an advising appointment. Upon acceptance to the program, you will have group advising meetings led by the faculty leader.

Should you prefer a semester or academic year program you are required to meet with our advising staff. This gives us an opportunity to get to know you and ensure programmatic fit.
