Catalogs and Resources
The intensity of this program requires active participation to maintain the pace. To avoid falling behind and to succeed up to the final weeks of the program, attend all classes and complete all assignments.
You will be in class with other UC students. Regular classes are typically held Monday through Thursday until 4 pm. Additional activities are scheduled on some weekends.
Attendance and class participation are required. You are allowed a total of two absences during the program. Each absence beyond the limit will result in a deduction of 3 percentage points from your raw total. If you miss any portion of a class, you may be marked as absent or late, upon the faculty member’s discretion. Three tardies automatically convert to an absence. You will be allowed to make-up examinations in case of an excused absence due to illness, university approved activities, and major emergencies upon presentation of documentation to the instructor.
You will earn direct UC credit and grades for all coursework. Grades for this program are usually available in late August, about a month after the program ends. They may not arrive in time to accommodate the summer degree verification deadline.
