Adult Success through Accelerated Programs (A.S.A.P.)
A.S.A.P. is for adults who want to earn a college degree at an accelerated, flexible and independent pace.
We turn your experience into opportunity
A.S.A.P. makes it possible for you to earn college credit for the knowledge and skills you've gained through your work and life experiences. We use Prior Learning Assessments and other tools to match up your knowledge with college courses, leaving you with more money in your pocket and less time in the classroom.
We help you earn a degree in half the time
As an A.S.A.P. student, you can choose to take accelerated, 8-week courses that meet one night a week at one of our off-campus locations in Burnsville, Eagan, Oakdale and Saint Paul, or on Saturdays at our Inver Grove Heights campus. This way, you can take two classes each semester while balancing just one at a time.
We provide personalized degree planning & advising
Our staff is dedicated to helping you achieve your personal and professional goals by making the most of your unique background and experience. As an A.S.A.P. student, you will:
- develop a comprehensive degree/transfer plan that includes individual courses and assessments
- have access to ongoing expert advising from faculty and staff who understand your needs and can help you succeed
- be welcomed into a learning environment that is supportive and student-centered
