Help spread the word! Accelerate for the liberal arts degree is here!

Brightpoint’s new Accelerate Pathway is a flexible, innovative way to earn your associate of liberal arts degree. Take one 5- or 7-week class at a time and earn your degree in just two years!

The Accelerate Pathway also features:
• A cohort model, so you move through classes with the same group of students on a clear path to graduation
• Asynchronous online courses, which means you can engage with your peers, your instructors, and the course content on a schedule that works with yours
• No textbook costs
• Project-based assessments
• Embedded tutors
• Interactive, game-based learning

Plus, you’ll have access to all of Brightpoint’s student services, like the library, the writing center, career services, and more.

The Accelerate Pathway kicks off this fall, so now is the time to sign up for this great opportunity!

Explore the classes being offered as part of this pathway by visiting Look for classes with course section numbers beginning with XL in the Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 schedules.
