Frequently asked questions

How long does it take a typical student to earn a degree at Grantham? Can I accelerate the time it takes to obtain my degree?

Some students have completed their bachelor’s degree in as little as 18 months depending on the number of transfer credits accepted, diligence in studies, type of degree program, number of electives, etc.

There are three ways to accelerate degree completion:

  • Transfer Credit: Prior college coursework, military experience, employer courses, and equivalency exams such as CLEP and DSST will be evaluated for transfer credit.
  • Accelerated Course Format: Grantham offers students the ability to proceed through their courses at an accelerated pace. Each course is 8 weeks in length; however, the accelerated format is designed to offer students the opportunity to complete their courses faster than the allotted 8 week enrollment period.
  • Frequent Course Starts: Because Grantham’s courses begin on a frequent basis, you won’t have to wait for the semester to end or for a new enrollment period to begin in order to start your next course.
