*Open Entry: North Central offers computer networking (IT) courses in an "open entry" format. This means you may, with instructor approval, sign up for a class designated as "OE" after the standard drop/add date. The open entry format enables you to work at your own pace. With the instructor's permission, you may register for and begin additional OE courses no later than the end of the 12th week of the semester. Immediate payment will be expected upon enrollment and all OE courses for which you have registered must be completed by the end of the semester. Financial aid restrictions may apply.

All IT courses are scheduled as TBA. This means "to be arranged" and indicates they are self-paced courses. You should see your professor the first week of the semester to set up your personal timetable.
