  • Speed up or slow down as needed — you’re evaluated by how well you demonstrate competencies, not by how long it takes to learn them.
  • Work directly with faculty to ensure you’ve learned all the material.
  • Take as many one-credit courses as you want in a term and pay one flat tuition rate.
