Like the non-Accelerated MSOL, students are required to complete 30 credit hours, which include 18 credit hours of foundation course work. Additionally, the Accelerated MSOL requires 9 credit hours in prescribed content courses beyond the foundation courses and a 3 credit-hour capstone program course. The second course, MSOL 5102 is staggered four weeks following the start of the first course, MSOL-5000 . The last course in the Accelerated MSOL track, MSOL 5110 starts four weeks following the start of the last specialization course. All other courses are taken in pairs (see course schedule).
Students who start in the Accelerated MSOL track may reschedule their courses and continue their studies in the non-Accelerated MSOL track. Students who opt out of the Accelerated MSOL track, regardless of reason, will not be permitted back into the Accelerated track and will lose any promotional benefits, which may have been in effect at the time of initial enrollment.
Any student transferring out of the Accelerated MSOL track into the non-Accelerated MSOL or vice-versa must work with his or her assigned Academic and Finance Advisor to complete the process. Students in the non-Accelerated MSOL can only transfer into the Accelerated MSOL track within the first four weeks of the first course.
Students who fail a course in the Accelerated MSOL are immediately dismissed from the Accelerated track and must transfer to the non-Accelerated track if they want to continue in the MSOL program. Academic Leaves of Absences (ALOAs) are not permitted in the Accelerated MSOL track. Students who require an ALOA may request one with the understanding that they must move to the non-Accelerated track upon their return.
