The Center for Degree Acceleration


The Center for Degree Acceleration provides several opportunities for students to accelerate their time to degree completion and reduce the cost of their program of study. The center helps undergraduate students by providing multiple pathways to demonstrate college-level learning acquired outside of the classroom and earn college credits including: 

  • Allowing students to easily transfer previous college-level courses or an associate’s degree.
  • Serving as the point of contact between enrollment advisors and academic advisors to enable students to foster earlier degree completion.
  • Offering guidance to students on ways to obtain academic credit for college-level learning through a portfolio development course.
  • Instructing students on other options to earn credit by examination.
  • Providing guidance on the Accelerate into Master’s (AIM) programs.
