The Accelerated Adult Degree Program at Chestnut Hill College supports a wide array of adult students looking to earn a degree to advance their careers or satisfy a personal goal.
We combine hybrid, online classes and face-to-face instruction to create a balanced, accessible education for adult students. Plus, we provide admissions and success counselors to help create individual plans and assist students on their journeys.
The AADP program offers 9 bachelor’s and associate’s degrees with all courses scheduled in 8-week formats for maximum flexibility and fast degree completion time. The calendar year is divided into six, 8-week sessions, and students may enter at the beginning of any session. Classes are conveniently offered Monday-Thursday in the evenings (6pm - 9pm) to fit an adult’s busy schedule. The weekends are yours!
Start Fresh or Transfer Credits
New students may start programs from scratch with zero credits; or for those students with prior learning, we allow a transfer of up to 75 credits from another accredited college or university where applicable. Additionally, prior learning assessment options can help students earn credit for on-the-job and training program experience they may already have.
