Residency Weeks

2016 Residency Weeks

2016 gateway courses will take place during Residency Week I from Saturday, July 9 - Friday, July 15. Students admitted to the iSchool's online master's programs (excluding Executive IM and SIGCEN students) are required to attend this residency week to kick off the program and complete the gateway courses.

Gateway courses will be accessible online through Blackboard (SU's LMS) on Friday, June 17 and remain open through the residency. Preliminary work, including readings and assignments, must be completed prior to arriving on campus in preparation for the residency portion of gateway courses.

Residency Week II takes place Monday, July 18 - Friday, July 22, and is a second set of residency courses that offers non-gateway course offerings available to all graduate students.
