A new Oregon cohort begins each August, which is the fall semester.
Application materials are reviewed upon their receipt, and students are notified of their acceptance status as soon as decisions are made. The earlier all application materials are received, the earlier a decision can be made. Applications should be submitted by July 1st for fall admission.
SLIM Oregon students are admitted as a group (cohort).
Required courses are taught during two intensive weekends with online work spanning the entire semester. Full-time SLIM faculty fly from Kansas to Portland to teach during the weekends. Hours for the classes are Fridays from 6-9 pm and Saturdays from 9 am – 5pm.
Many electives are taught entirely online; some are offered with weekend intensive instruction.
SLIM Oregon students graduate with a Master of Library Science. Emporia State University, located in Emporia, Kansas, is accredited by the American Library Association (ALA).
