One-Day Schedule

Our one-day sessions are for students admitted for the spring or summer semesters. One-day sessions in August are available to students admitted for the fall if they are unable to attend any two-day sessions or are admitted late in the summer.

If you are admitted for the fall semester and have registered for a two-day session in June or July, please view the two-day schedule.

Overnight accommodations are not available for students or their families attending a one day session.
