UIndy's accelerated programs are five-week courses that meet one night a week. The courses are offered nine times a year.

Most classes are three credit hours. It takes 120 credit hours, or 40 to 45 courses, to earn a bachelor's degree, so it's possible to complete a bachelor's degree in as little as two to three years.

Key components of this program include prior learning assessment and college credit by examination. You may receive up to 30 credit hours for what you've learned from your life and work experiences through prior learning assessment. In addition, you can take many local and national tests for college credit, exemption or placement.

Other options

If you already have a bachelor's degree, you might be interested in some of our graduate certificate programs or graduate degrees. Or, if you're looking to gain a basic knowledge of emergency management and public safety, consider our undergraduate certificate in emergency and disaster management.
