Graduate Intensives

Academic Intensive Guidelines

  1. Registration for all intensives should be completed through your student portal. Payment for these courses is due in the Business Office by the course registration deadline. A late fee will be assessed if payment is not received by the course registration deadline.
  2. Courses may be closed due to enrollment caps. Prudent students will register early in order to avoid closed classes and late fees.
  3. All students are required to complete any course preassignments, regardless of when they registered. Check the syllabus by following the link on the course title.
