Why study material you already know? With our Momentum option, you can focus on learning new competencies at your pace. We’ll work with you to apply your current knowledge and develop your personalized learning plan and course resources. Instead of attending classes, you’ll master new subject areas and move directly into the next without waiting for a new term to begin, with subject matter experts and a faculty mentor guiding you along the way.
Momentum programs are ideal if you’re highly motivated, have some expertise in your subject area, and can commit to 16-20 hours per week to your studies.
Visit our Momentum page for more details about competency-based education programs.
Momentum programs are priced at a flat rate of $2,500 per 16-week term. This means, the more competencies you complete each term, the more you can save on the total cost of your degree. To make this cost effective, we recommend you complete no less than 15 competencies per term. At this time, Momentum programs are not eligible for financial aid including military TA or veterans benefits. You will be asked to pay the $2,500 with a credit card or check when you register for each term.
