Part-Time Students

Students may take up to three (3) years to complete their degree. Programs are individually tailored to meet students' interests and professional goals. Students take between 3-6 credits per semester. 

Sample Plans
Students should work with their academic advisor to map out their part-time schedule for their 2-3 years at CWRU. While students do not need to necessarily know which elective they are taking in a given semester, they should make a plan for when they intend to take an elective slot versus clinical ethics rotations requirements or concentration requirements to ensure they meet the 30 credit hour program requirements.
