Accelerated Undergraduate Degrees (AUD) at Lancaster Bible College are designed for adults like you who want to complete their college education, but need to find the time in their busy schedules. With these programs, you can return to college and receive a biblically based, Christ-centered education in a fast-paced program.
You might only need to complete 10 courses through our program to finish your bachelor's degree. Full-time students taking 4 courses each six-month term can usually complete their degree in just 15 months. But some students have finished their 10 courses in just 8 months or less. Part-time students might opt to finish their degree over two years of study.
Whatever you decide, we are committed to customizing a schedule for you that offers the greatest flexibility and shortest time to finishing your degree or certificate – at the pace you select.
We offer a bachelor’s degree, minors, and certificate options.
Life experience credit is college credit a student can earn based on prior learning through their life experience. A student can earn up to 30 tuition free credits through our Credit for Prior Learning evaluation process for which there is a 1-time evaluation fee of $175 and a $75/credit transcription fee.

External documentation must be provided to verify the life experience. This could be in the form of copies of certificates, letters of accommodation, or emails directly to us from others who can verify what the student has completed, etc.
Discussing potential credit for prior learning with a program staff member is an important step as you begin your studies with us. The purpose of the discussion is to give an estimate of the number of hours you might earn from prior learning experiences. There is a worksheet that will guide you in recalling and documenting learning experiences and will serve a guide for the discussion. This should be completed only after discussing your situation with a program staff member.
