Final Students Presentations and Graduation

Silvia Nakkach


Please note that the schedule above is subject to change.

Please note that students must complete the entire curriculum, which meets at predetermined times throughout the year, in order to receive the certificate of completion. Should a participant miss one or two classes, he or she will have the option of either attending another class offered by CIIS Public Programs & Performances or completing a special project at an additional cost.

Policy for Missed Classes and Students from Out of Town
If a student misses a class, he or she must make up the class by taking another class that is equivalent of the content in the missed class. The student may take a non-certificate class through Public Programs & Performances at a 15-25 percent discount. In certain cases, the student may find a class elsewhere to fulfill the requirement. All make-up classes must be approved by Silvia Nakkach and the director of Public Programs & Performances. We do everything we can to create solutions for unavoidable schedule conflics, but out of town students must attend most classes locally. It is not possible to complete the program online or remotely.If you live outside of the Bay Area, please contact the Public Programs & Performances office at (415) 575-6175 to address the details of your particular situation.Students can accrue 20 hours for an individual project at an extra cost (to cover advisor and other administrative fees).
