The Benefits of Taking 6-Week Courses Online


Happy student on laptop

If you’re looking to finish your degree quickly, our online 6-week courses offer a unique opportunity to accelerate your academic progress!

Half the length of our regular courses, the condensed 6-week format makes it possible to focus on one course at a time while qualifying as a full-time student over the 12-week term. You’ll benefit by graduating sooner and putting your degree to work faster, increasing your return on investment.

Designed to Support Your Career Goals

Our 6-week courses are designed to support your career goals as you balance your education with the demands of work and everyday life.

Offered online, with some hybrid and in-person options, these condensed courses provide you the flexibility to do your work on your schedule. Have some free time in the morning before work? On Saturdays after running errands? Maybe you can focus better after the kids go to bed. Do what works best for you!

But don’t take it from us – here’s what some of our students and alumni had to say:
