Northwestern Christian University Accelerated Degree Programs

Understanding the NCU Accelerated Program

Accelerated online degree programs allow students to earn BA, MA, ThD, and Ph.D. degrees in as little as 90-days in numerous majors. This is possible for Bachelor degree programs through a process involving PLA: Prior Learning Assessment in addition to  transfer credits, core curriculum, learning modules and thesis. *Master's and Doctorate programs do not require PLA assessment and require only essay assignments along with a thesis or dissertation.

Today numerous colleges and universities are providing the great benefit of PLA: Prior Learning Assessments to their mature, more experienced students to translate lifetime learning experience into credits to be legitimately applied to degree programs. This translates into huge savings in both time and educational expense. Northwestern is providing this great benefit to all qualified students.

The accelerated bachelor degree program can be completed in 90-day or more, depending on the students prior education, skill set and time management ability. The accelerated Master's and Doctorate degrees can actually be earned in less than 90-Days depending on the student's skill set and time management skills.

The key to our accelerated bachelor program is the PLA; Prior learning Assessment. The PLA format is a tool being used by numerous colleges and universities today. It utilizes a system whereby student's are able to document prior life, military, work and educational experience through organizing a portfolio. This portfolio can then be assessed for appropriate credits which can be applied to an accelerated degree program.

At Northwestern the student's PLA: Prior Learning Assessment can provide up to 60 credit hours of course recognition which can the be applied toward a 120 credit hour bachelor degree program.

For those who enroll in accelerated online master's and Doctoral programs a PLA is not required for their accelerated online degree programs.

The accelerated online master's program requires that the student write 2-papers based on books related to the course major, to be accompanied by a 60 page thesis.

The accelerated online doctorate program involves 2-book papers based on the course major followed by a 150 page dissertation.

*An easy to follow guide is provided for writing the thesis and dissertation for the accelerated degree programs at Northwestern.
