Accelerated Programs & Courses

Complete Your Education Goals Faster with Accelerated Programs & Courses

WCC’s accelerated programs and courses are designed for students seeking flexibility, juggling a demanding schedule, or wanting to make a career move right away. Most accelerated courses can be completed in a few short weeks and certificates can be earned in a single semester. 

By definition, courses within accelerated programs are consolidated into shorter periods than the traditional 15-week semester. That compressed workload means you will do more in less time. Some students thrive in this fast-paced, deadline-driven environment; others are better suited to a more traditional academic schedule. We suggest you speak with an academic advisor to find out if an accelerated program/course is the right fit based on your learning style and outside obligations.
