*Completion time based on a full-time student with a prior associate’s degree. Programs will take longer for part-time students, students who take leaves of absence or drop and return, and students with a prior diploma/certificate to complete. The number of required credits may vary depending on individual state education requirements, which could affect how long it will take to complete the program. More than 45% of 2018–2019 graduates completed the program in 18 months or less (Source: Purdue Global Office of Reporting and Analysis, August 2019).
