If you’re a student in the online UW Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management and Technology (HIMT) program, summer can save you time.
How much? Consider this example:
Say, you take two courses each spring and fall semester, and you take summers off. You would earn your HIMT degree in five years.
Now, imagine you take two courses during summer semester, too. If you did this, you’d graduate with your bachelor’s degree in just three and a half years.
Summer matters a lot. Make it count.
You might be a UW HIMT student already and want to speed up your time to graduation. Or maybe you haven’t applied to the program yet and want one semester to ease into online learning.
In either case, now is a perfect time to start planning because registration for summer courses opens March 13.
