Online SC Plan of Study

Plan of Study

Two weeks of on campus study are required to complete two clinical courses at the UMass Dartmouth campus.  These clinical courses are taught during the first summer of the program over a two week period, and students must be present at UMass Dartmouth to complete this work. Typically, the clinical courses are held from the last week of June through the first week of July. Housing is available to all online students at a reasonable rate (housing information will be provided by the program director upon request). The class will be a cohort of students from Massachusetts, other states, and international locations, and the program requires that all students in this cohort participate and follow the program of study exactly.
