All online class times are California/Pacific Time. Please note that California observes Daylight Savings Time each year from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November.

Comprehensive Exams are scheduled according to student need. Students who fail the Comprehensive Exam will be enrolled in a Study Term and assigned a professor to mentor them through the process of studying and synthesizing their coursework.  They will pay the standard tuition and records fee for this support and to re-sit the exam.  

PLEASE NOTE: Failure to take a required course when one is offered may prevent a student from completing his/her program in the allotted time, as all course work must be completed before a student will be allowed to advance to the dissertation phase of the program. Schedules are subject to change.
