These things are always true about the class schedule:

  • There are no classes after 1:00 PM on Fridays.
  • There are significant breaks between each class. (This is like a university schedule.)
  • In your Level, there will be only ONE of EACH CLASS. There are not multiple options to choose from.
  • We will tell you your schedule on the second day of orientation.
