The flexibility in schedules helps students to address traveling distances and integrate work commitments with their education. The Director of Admissions discusses each student’s schedule in detail with him or her during an interview prior to acceptance at DSM. The calendar, requirements for graduation, and DSM policies are also discussed on the first day of school.
