Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Are your classes online because of COVID-19?
    Each program because of size is handling COVID-19 restrictions differently. Some programs are taking place fully in the classroom while others are taking a hybrid approach with some classes online and attending labs in the school in small groups. We urge you to give us a call to speak in depth about these protocols. Also you may view our COVID-19 guidelines by clicking here.
