Why come to SuperWeek?
SuperWeek allows you to complete up to six hours of face to face time in a single week, or twelve hours of face to face time in two weeks!
What is a SuperWeek?
DTS has designed this special breed of Online and Distance Education course that we call SuperWeek. It’s a course format that utilizes everything you’re already accustomed to in a typical online course, but it includes intensive face to face instruction and interaction components at the Dallas campus.

SuperWeek Facebook Group
