ExcelTrackTM Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Overview
Technology-based careers exist in nearly every industry, offering diverse opportunities for job applicants with the right credentials. ExcelTrack™ is a personalized, competency-based education that gives you more control over how you learn. Earn the same high-quality bachelor’s degree in IT as a traditional Purdue Global online program—only faster and for less money.*
Designed for highly disciplined, self-motivated learners with strong professional knowledge, ExcelTrackTM is centered on real-world career experiences and builds on the skills and knowledge you’ve already mastered.
Once enrolled in the online IT bachelor's degree, you take a series of assessments to demonstrate what you already know and move quickly past those topics. That way, you’ll focus on developing the IT skills that are immediately applicable to your workplace. A faculty member will work with you to ensure you’re on track to successfully complete each course.
Speed up or slow down as much as you want, based on your schedule and personal learning path. You are evaluated by how well you demonstrate competencies, not by how long it takes to learn them.
Each ExcelTrack™ course is a single credit, covering a particular skill or piece of knowledge. You advance based on what you already know, and spend time only on what you need to learn.
Take as many 1-credit classes as you want every term for a flat rate of $2,200, excluding fees. Taking more credits per term lowers the average cost per credit.
