Because of changes in the schedules of professors, the needs of the current group of students, and the days on which holidays fall, it is very difficult to publish a schedule very far in advance. Below is the MAC annual schedule as far as we can estimate it. Please note that this schedule is tentative and subject to change. If you change your work schedule based on this schedule, understand that it could change.

The schedule below is presented for your planning needs. If you have any questions, please call the MAC Office for the latest, most up-to-date information available.

The official, most up-to-date class offerings can be found by using Self-Service.

As you consider the schedule below, please note that several classes carry prerequisites. Also, we recommend that you look at the proposed MAC timeline for a suggested sequence for classes and required program steps. The MAC faculty and staff will be very happy to help you with interpreting the proposed timeline, or helping you fashion your own personal schedule.

The MAC Program normally requires anywhere from 2 1/2 to 5 years to complete, depending on how you arrange your schedule.
