The undergraduate program is 5 semesters long. Students will begin the program by completing the first semester at a community college (please see our community college partners listed on this page). Relationships  have been established and course offerings developed to meet the requirements of the ABS program.  Once accepted into the program and upon beginning coursework at our Edina location (7700 France Avenue), a full-time commitment is needed from students for 4 semesters. The program is run as a cohort model; all students admitted at a given time go through the program together following the same sequence of courses. Please visit the links below to find out more about the program. Applications are due each fall on October 15th for admission into the program beginning spring semester.
