Accelerated Cohort Overview
Accelerated cohort degree programs offer a faster pace for students to receive their degrees. Cohorts start once you complete your first 60 college credits, or have a completed Associate’s degree.
When you enroll in an accelerated cohort degree program, you join a group of classmates pursuing the same degree track. You’ll advance through your entire major course-by-course with the same community of peers.
In an undergraduate-level cohort, a student will complete 49 credit hours in a 72-week timespan.
Is An Accelerated Cohort Degree Program Right For Me?
If you are a highly motivated and disciplined individual who is eager to complete their degree, then an accelerated cohort may be a great fit for you! It will provide a faster-paced model which often requires more of a time commitment. Self-motivation, time management, and discipline are key to finishing these types of programs successfully.
