Just thought some of you would like to know that NSC has totally revised their accelerated program curriculum. It now looks alot like UNLV. Instead of five 10 week blocks of classes you now have 3 full semesters with a higher credit load (FAll, Spring, Summer). I heard that they got alot of complaints about the constantly changing schedules. This is also what they are doing with their regular program, you will be able to get done in 3 semesters because they are trying to make sure all classes will be offered during all semesters. So I guess it really wouldn't matter which program you are accepted into because you'll be able to complete in 3 semesters with either one. Their website has the new curriculum posted as a Pdf file.

Yes, I did speak to NSC staff (advisor). Now if you look on their website the regular program is still listed as 4 semesters long right now as that is the suggested length but they assured me that it could be done in 3. The accelerated program does show the 3 semester schedule. If you want just call NSC and speak with them. It's always better to get info first hand.
