As a May Student, You Will
- Take first-year courses over three semesters – summer, fall and spring – and still graduate from Cardozo in three years.
- Attend fall and spring first-year classes with fall-entry students, and learn from the same renowned faculty as students who start in the fall.
- Automatically join the traditional full-time program in their second year, and graduate with fall-entry students in three years.
Annual tuition for the May program is equivalent to the tuition set for the fall full-time program. First-year tuition will be billed over the three semesters.
