Instead of enrolling in traditional 15 week semesters, MAP students complete their coursework in 5-week mini-semesters.  This means a more intense learning environment that moves you more quickly toward your degree.  Even better, MAP courses are 95% online, putting you in charge of your school schedule.

  • Complete your degree in just 13 months!
  • Learn in online communities of like-minded students.

Students who have placed into ENG 101 and MAT 137 are eligible for the program.  The program is ideal for students who are looking to take only two courses at a time, but who also understand that those courses move 3 times faster than traditional college courses.  If you work hard and you’re ready for college, MAP may just be the program for you!

The program is currently accepting students in General Studies, Criminal Justice, Criminology, Business Studies, and Liberal Arts.
