How much time should I expect to spend studying outside of class?
Study time for students in a FOCUS Degree Completion program varies from class to class and student to student. Normally you can expect to spend approximately 10 to 15 hours a week outside of class reading, working on class projects or writing papers.
Study time for students in a distance education program varies from class to class and student to student. Generally you can expect to spend approximately 5 to 10 hours a lesson.
I work full time and have family commitments. Will I have time to complete my FOCUS program?
Most FOCUS Degree Completion students have family commitments and are employed full time. Many adults who are not able to complete their degree through a traditional day-school program have found the flexibility of attending classes once a week or via distance education is much more compatible with their busy schedules.
How will my college credits transfer into the FOCUS program?
