Missed courses, deferrals and withdrawals
The Executive MBA is a 20-month program where classes take place during alternate weekends and five residential modules. Participation requires a commitment to all weekends and modules in the series. If a student misses a course or an entire module, the program administrators will advise the student of the options available to make up the missing course(s). An administrative fee of USD $250 will be due and payable at the time of rescheduling. Additionally, the program cost in effect at the time of the makeup course will apply, which may result in the student paying additional fees due to an increase in costs.
Accepted candidates may defer their enrollment once, if needed, until the next entering cohort. Such deferments must be submitted in writing to the EMBA office no later than August 27, 2012 for the 2012 entering class. All monies paid at the time of deferment, except the application fee of $125 and any course materials used, will be refunded to the student. Upon re-enrollment, the candidate will be required to submit updated personal and professional information, an updated organizational sponsorship form, and a new application fee. All deferred candidates are subject to the program costs in place at the time of their actual enrollment.
