Earn Your Degree Fast with a Flexible Schedule

You may need to complete as little as 10 courses in order to earn your bachelor’s degree through our accelerated adult education program. Full-time students who take 4 courses per semester can usually earn their degree in just 15 months. This means a student would take one course in each 6-week session. Some students have completed their program 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.

  • In Class students taking on-site classes come once a week for five weeks per course. Our courses typically meet on Tuesday nights from 6 to 10 PM. During the sixth week of the course, the class does not meet so that students can complete their course work.
  • Online students taking online courses are not required to attend class at any time. Instead, they engage in collaborative learning through Canvas, our learning management system. Learn more.
