Accelerated Programs

Start Your Career Early!


Accelerated. Affordable.

Going back to school is a smart economic decision and can be a big commitment. In the short term, it may involve some sacrifice of time and money, but the long term payoff is worth the commitment.

Accelerated degree programs are designed for students who would like:

  • a quality education,
  • in a short amount of time,
  • and with more flexibility.

The Accelerated Bachelor's Degree Completion Program is designed for students with previous college credit who want to:

  • transfer credits,
  • accelerate their degree timeline,
  • and earn their Bachelor's degree at an affordable cost.

If you have an associate's degree - or close to 60 credit hours, that qualification can be applied toward an accelerated Bachelor's degree at Tennessee State University.

With courses competitively price at $287 per credit hour,  the accelerated student can complete a Bachelor's degree in as little as 18 months.*
