Programs schedule

Classes usually meet once a week in the evenings and students take one class at a time. Cohorts, the group of students you'll go through the program with, are held in a variety of delivery options: face-to-face, hybrid or fully online. Some programs have a different schedule.

Credit transfer

Our adult undergraduate transfer credit policy will allow you the opportunity to complete your education goals sooner, and more efficiently. Many adult learners earn college-level credits outside of an academic institution. Our enrollment counselors will work with you to uncover the value of all of your life's learning experiences.

With courses beginning every five weeks, our working adult oriented programs give you the flexibility to start when you are ready.
