# Calendar Overview

## Semester Overview

Students are admitted to FIFC on a rolling basis. Students begin
their twelve to twenty-four month sequence immediately following their
admission. Once started, our integrated, applied program runs on a
sequential semester basis.

The program is divided into two semesters with each semester having two
terms. One class is taken each term. At the end of every term, each
successful student will have produced a measurable valuation report intended
for inclusion in the student’s portfolio. The curriculum is integrated and
tailored to prepare students to complete the valuation report at the end of
each course. Each term’s material is then scaffolded on that of the term
before, meaning that the complexity of the curriculum increases and relies
upon the skills learned in previous terms.

## Grades Overview

Grades are entered at the end of each term. Each of the courses
completed (MBV 1, MBV 2, MBV 3 and MBV 4) will result in a grade and the
cumulative results of these grades represent the overall GPA.
