Estimated Time to Completion

A full-time student completes 24 credit hours per year (eight 3-credit-hour courses), organized into three terms (Fall, Spring and Summer). Both the Fall and Spring terms consist of three sequential (nonconsecutive) 6-week blocks, while the Summer term consists of two sequential (non- consecutive) 6-week blocks. A full-time student with no transfer credit or credit for prior learning credit would take approximately five-and-one-quarter years to complete their degree. Depending upon the goals of the student, commitments outside their studies, transfer credit accepted and the student’s level of academic achievement, it is reasonable to assume that a student could complete the program in a shorter time frame. Students will develop a schedule to completion with their academic counselor.

TOTAL POSSIBLE TRANSFER CREDIT: 66 CH
*Transfer credit can significantly reduce time and costs.
