Course Dates: Cohort Five

DCCL courses generally run 7.5 weeks and include face-to-face and online components.

Your three-year journey begins in the summer with a one-day program orientation followed immediately by the start of summer courses. Summer courses inlcude five days of face-to-face delivery with the remainder being online through the end of the semester. The first five-day, face-to-face component for Cohort Five runs from Friday through Tuesday.  The online portions of the two summer courses will follow consecutively, with IDSL 805 completing first and then ending the semester with IDSL 810.

Fall and Spring courses run consecutively - each for 7.5 weeks with about 1 week between courses. Breaks may require some follow-up course work or pre-course work. Fall and Spring courses generally begin on a Friday (the Friday before the regular Ferris courses begin) and end on a Wednesday – constituting 7.5 weeks. Each course typically includes one face-to-face component generally held during the second weekend of each class as follows: Friday 4 pm to 9 pm, and Saturday 8:30 am to 5 pm.
