THE SCHOOL FOR PROFESSIONAL STUDIES
Walsh University's Accelerated Degree Programs
ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS - Simply transfer a minimum of 30 semester hour credits from a regionally accredited institution(s) where you maintained at least a 2.00 grade point average.
The minimum age requirement is 23, and you must be able to document at least three full years of work experience to enter any of our accelerated degree programs.
If you've earned less than 30 semester hours of credit, or have under a 2.0 GPA, a School for Professional Studies advisor will be happy to meet with you to discuss your options.
In addition to a streamlined admissions process and flexible, in-class sessions, SPS has developed a menu system to help you earn your degree in an accelerated time frame.
TEST OUTS- Credit may be earned through two nationally standardized examinations - CLEP and DANTES (Administered by Walsh University).
PORTFOLIO- Credit may be earned by constructing a portfolio of essays demonstrating knowledge from life/work experience equivalent to that gained from a college course.
TRANSFER CREDITS-Credits you have earned from other accredited institutions.
PROFESSIONAL TRAINING-Credit may be earned for training completed through your employer, professional organization, or military experience.
E-LEARNING- Online courses are available to all SPS students. You can take up to 10 courses online in the accelerated program - study and prepare your coursework anywhere, anytime.
