Accelerated Degree Program Requirements

Simply transfer a minimum of 12 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 21  to enter any of our accelerated degree programs.

If you've earned less than 12 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.
