Cohort Information

What is a cohort?
A cohort is a group of people who join together (virtually) and go through a certificate or degree program in sync with each other. They take the courses and move through the program as a group, creating relationships and working in a supportive environment even though they only meet online. Cohort members have the advantage of a personalized learning experience supported by knowledgeable faculty advisors and mentors. Through a carefully planned sequence of courses cohort members find a high degree of success.
How to form a cohort:

Forming a cohort is easy. Talk to the people that you know. Talk to people on your professional social media sites. See if your employer may know other co-workers who would like to participate. Then contact us and we will be happy to lend assistance through information, literature or even a site visit.
