When does enrollment end for earch semester?
We close our open enrollment two weeks before the start of a semester. Be sure to subscribe to the mailing list to get updates throughout each enrollment period.
How much time do I need to commit per week?
Your weekly live session will run approximately 2-3 hours. Your weekly time commitment for assignments can be anywhere from 7-20 hours. This course is project based, so you will ultimately decide how many hours to pour into each weeks deliverable. But plan on a minimum of 10 hours per week.
Can I join this program if I have a full-time job?
Yes! Many of our students have full time jobs and we work around business hours (see time commitment question above). We only ask that you make your course work a priority.
When will the live classes take place?
Week nights or weekends. We understand that many of our students have 9-5 commitments, so live sessions are scheduled either after working hours, or on the weekend. Your exact class time will be determined at the start of each semester, based on your mentor assignment.
What if I'm outside of a US time zone?
We love our international student body and make every effort to accomodate across time zones. We realize that the time change issue is hard for many outside the US. We run class times on US Eastern Time Zone. We attempt to make every accommodation to our international students, but sometimes it means late nights or early mornings for those outside the US. We take this on a case by case basis and do our best to make it work.
How do the live sessions work?
We use a platform called Zoom for the live sessions. You will be on camera, and will see a video feed of your peers and mentor. You will present your progress for the week and receive critique from your mentor and peers. Live sessions also contain organic Q&A where you can discuss specific workflow techniques or concepts with your mentor and classmates. Sessions typically run about 2-3 hours, so bring a drink, a snack and a sketchbook to doodle and take notes.
