The school requires 90 credit hours of instruction for graduation. Under the hybrid program, 57 credit hours are completely online. Apart from a required orientation session, the other credit hours will be satisfied through attendance for on-campus instructions during, at most, two long weekend periods during the fall and spring semesters and one long weekend during the summer session. Notably, after the first year, all summer semester classes are completely online as are all classes during the last year of study.

Apart from meetings with instructors or other students that may be required, students work at times when they are able to do so. Attendance at pre-scheduled classes is not required.
