Hi Folks,

I was awarded a schoolarship. I need to finish Colored stones essentials, Diamond essensials, Colored stones all 3 courses in 3 -4 months. I need to do it so fast in order to fully use my USD4000 2015year schoolarship.

is it possible to do these 3 courses in 3-4 months online if I also have a full time job?

Thank you,
Timur

If you spend every night and weekends studying you can do it. Get your proctor lined up now.

As the scholarship is simply used to pay for the course tuition, my understanding is that you should simply need to complete the Essentials courses and sign up for the Colored Stones course by the end of the allotted time period. Both of the Essential courses are fairly short and are often completed by students over a weekend or two. Once you have enrolled into the full Colored Stones course, you will have 18 months to complete it.

I would suggest that you contact the person in charge of scholarship information directly. She is quite Happy to help and can be reached at extension 4006. She should be able to confirm the information above and answer any other questions that you may have about your scholarship.

Ah, I understand... It is definitely doable as I have had several students finish the course within a shorter period of time than that. However, it will take a dedicated effort and substantial amount of your spare time. As there are 27 online chapter assignments, you can plan accordingly for your schedule. Be sure to try and leave a couple of weeks for your final exam at the end of the course in case multiple attempts are required (you are permitted 3).

Best of luck, I'm sure you will do just fine!
