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 traditional face-to-face instruction with hybrid and online classes 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 14 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 in the evenings (6pm - 9pm) to fit an adult’s busy schedule.
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.
