Enrolling in our Hybrid Intensive courses as a Community Member (Continuing Education)
If you are thinking about enrolling in a degree program at Bayan in the future and want to take a course that will count for the program at that time, you should take the course for credit instead of continuing education, at the full tuition rate of $880/unit ($2,640 per 3-unit course). To do so, you must be admitted to the school as a non-degree-seeking student through an application process before the start of the semester. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and application deadlines.
