You mentioned the open classes: Is the cost for those structured the same way as the regular session?
Caprice Huse

I’m interested in the open session courses. Are we able to apply financial aid to those courses? Or are they all out of pocket?

I know that Teacher Librarian candidates are required to do fieldwork. Are internships possible in that setting, given the time-demands of fieldwork?
Sherri Baca
01:11:32
Hi, I've reviewed a number of online MLIS programs. The vast majority are 36-39 units/credits. Will you please talk about why your program is 43 units? (more units)
amanda
01:11:34
I'm still a little confused about the difference between regular and special session - as a regular session student, does that mean there are some special session classes I wouldn't be able to take?

When it comes to applying for the MLIS program is there a need for letters of recommendations or a statement of purpose?
Brittany Baker
01:13:41
I applied but put the wrong session (regular vs. special). Can this be fixed?
Anne
01:14:08
Would the MARA be best if I am interested in purely archiving or is MLIS just as applicable?

I am already enrolled in the MARA program but am considering transferring to the MLIS. I already have a Master's Degree in Museum Studies but need to know more about library cataloging and standards as well as Digital Assets Management. Can I start with the Post Graduate Certificate and later apply that to the MLIS degree? I work in a Research Library where library standards are very important.
