Classes may be taught during the day, in the evenings or on the weekends. The schedule for each semester will be provided as early as possible, however, students should understand that the PT program should be their priority for the duration of the program and any outside employment or commitments should be kept to a minimum and should not interfere with the requirements of the program.
