* The number of "estimated total quarters" for each program assumes you are enrolled full-time (at least 12 credit hours per quarter) throughout the entire program.
Students taking more than 12 credit hours in a quarter will finish in fewer quarters; likewise, students taking fewer than 12 credit hours in a quarter may require
additional quarters. Transferred credits from previous colleges, testing out of classes, and successfully completing classes (avoiding having to repeat a class) may
also affect program length.
