Accelerated Evening Bachelor Degree

  • Evening & Weekend Class Schedule

  • Classroom Instruction
  • Transfer Friendly
  • Accelerated Format
  • 10 majors & 5 minors to choose from

Accelerated Format – Courses are offered one night per week or one Saturday morning per week for either a 5-week or 10-week block. This innovative format allows you to focus on one class at a time instead of juggling coursework of two, three or even four classes typical of a traditional college course format.

Evening & Weekend Class Schedule - Monday through Friday nights from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM or Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  These class times will allow students to maintain a job, family, and still pursue their degree.

Classroom Instruction – Get instruction in person, with professors face to face, interacting with fellow students.

Transfer Friendly – We accept transfer credits up to 60 credit hours in most cases with up to 75 credit hours from Kirkwood Community College and Hawkeye Community College.
