Full Throttle Degree Path

The FULL THROTTLE Degree Path provides students a concentrated, academically-focused path  to complete a four-year degree in just three years(!)through a combination of seated and online courses.

If your goal is to reduce college costs (estimated savings at $35,000 in tuition, room, board and personal expenses), gain early entry to graduate school, or earning a professional salary (well ahead of your classmates), then put your education in high gear.
