The Virginia Tech VT-MIT program allows you the flexibility to complete the program at your pace. We understand the demands on your time from your career, family, and personal life. Most students choose to take one or two classes a semester. With careful planning, you may choose to accelerate your studies; up to four classes a semester are available which would be considered a full-time load. You have five years to complete your degree. Slow & steady or fast & furious. Your call.
