    Accelerated & Adult Admission

    It's your turn to lead. Let us help.

    Accelerated undergrad at ursuline college2

    Ursuline's accelerated and adult programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of students - from traditional undergraduates to transfers to graduate students - seeking to complete a degree (or two) in less time.

    Whether you want to launch a successful career, advance in your current setting, or make a professional pivot, you will assemble the needed experience and skills. Your career path will be strengthened through Ursuline’s historic commitment to providing a values-centric environment of encouragement, support and intellectual inquiry.

    For students with transfer credit, visit Transferology to learn more about how your credits will transfer. Remember, if a course is not in Transferology this does not mean it does not transfer. It means we just need to review it for a transfer equivalency. You can also get an unofficial transfer credit evaluation by filling out our Transfer Credit Evaluation Form. This extra step ensures that you get the best evaluation for courses you took.

    Accelerated Program (UCAP)

    The Ursuline College Accelerated Program (UCAP) offers bachelor's degree completion programs with flexible scheduling in focused 5-week courses available online, and hybrid formats that can work with your busy schedule. Online certificates are also available.
