After your first semester, you will discuss your schedule with your academic advisor. Once your coursework has been planned, your advisor will work with the program administrative assistant to enroll you in the appropriate courses.

Starting in your third year, the program plans for each student to enroll in one elective per semester (Fall and Spring in both Year 3 and Year 4). You will be able to enroll in these electives once you have planned your schedule with your advisor.
