Master School Leadership Schedule provides the anticipated schedule of course offerings by semester/term for the next two years to facilitate student planning.
The School Leadership Class Schedules for a given semester/term are posted when registration opens and provide specific days and times that courses are offered.
LPP Track Schedule
The LPP schedule is designed to be completed within 14 months (3½ semesters). Students attend part-time during their first Spring term and full time for the duration of the program.
ExSL Track Schedule
The ExSL schedule is designed to be completed in 20 months (6 semesters). Students on the ExSL track have the flexibility to slow down or speed up their program pace, with the advisement and approval of their Faculty Academic Chair.
Licensure Only Track Schedule
The Licensure Only (LO) track is designed for students who already have a master’s degree and want to receive a Utah administrative license. Students in this track complete 27 hours of course credit and complete the state-required 450-hour internship. Coursework and internships are designed to be completed in 12 to 16 months. We accept five to seven LO students each year. Those interested in applying for the LO track are not required to complete a BYU Graduate Studies application, but should complete the School Leadership Application by January 15. Students applying for this track are not required to complete a graduate examination prior to being admitted. Click here for more information about LO schedules and specific coursework.

Cohorts alternate which days most courses are offered. If a cohort meets mainly on Monday and Wednesday evenings (4:00–7:00 p.m.), then the next cohort (entering the next year) meets mainly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (4:30–7:30 p.m.). Thus, the first year curriculum and the second year curriculum are offered on different evenings, allowing students increased flexibility to design their curricular path.
