"Degrees & Programs"

What’s unique about these CBE programs? You can choose how quickly you complete these courses within a 12 week term. You'll have a faculty-supported individualized learning experience based on previous knowledge so you can move through the course content at a pace that works for you - giving you the flexibility to earn your degree as quickly as possible.

How do these CBE programs work?

You choose your own pace.  The faster you go, the faster you could graduate. You can schedule 2, 3, or 4 courses every 12-week term. Spend less time on material you know and more time on new subject matter.

Once ready, faculty can unlock competency assessments so you can demonstrate what you know and how to apply it.
