    Whether you are a traditional undergraduate ready for an intense, fast-rack to grad school, or a working adult looking to finish a degree as efficiently as possible, Ursuline has an accelerated path for you. Our accelerated programs are ideal for students who are driven and focused on their goals.

    Accelerated Degree-Completion (UCAP)

    Thinking about returning to college but wondering if you have time? The Ursuline College Accelerated Program (UCAP) was developed for adult students seeking to finish their degree, even as they maintain work and family obligations. Focus on one course every five weeks. Flexible scheduling includes some online courses and some in a blended format that may require you to be on campus only every other week. Regardless of where you started, our dedicated team will help you navigate the admission process, register for classes, and light your path to success.
