CPS Online Offerings and Calendar

Online professional education programs are currently offered in varied durations. The tables below indicate each course and its corresponding timeframe.

Courses are generally offered monthly or every other month. Given the online nature of the courses, there is no formal scheduled time-off for holidays. Regularly scheduled live class sessions that fall on University holidays will be rescheduled to an alternate date by the instructor. Students who are unable to attend the alternate date are not penalized. Note, online PayTrain® CMA® and VIISTA classes are exceptions to the above as they follow the CPS On Campus Professional Education Course Schedule
