Albright College, one of MCC’s newest partners, launched an accelerated degree program at its Mesa location this September.  Program participants can complete a bachelor’s degree in approximately 24 months.  To sweeten the deal, Albright is offering a $2,500 scholarship to all alumni who hold an associate’s degree from MCC or any other Maricopa Community College. 

The accelerated degree program is designed for working adults ages 23 and up.  All programs consist of 16 courses that meet one night a week for two years.  A cohort learning style offers a group of students the opportunity to begin a course of study together and continue until their degree is completed, providing support and encouragement along the way. 

Programs available in Mesa are Applied Psychology, Business Administration, and Information Systems.  With a new cohort starting every 5-6 weeks, students can begin any time during the year.

Albright College is based in Reading, Pennsylvania.  They began offering the accelerated degree program in Pennsylvania in 1997, and 88% of the students who begin the program successfully complete it.  Albright opened its Mesa program this fall, and is one of several new colleges participating in the City of Mesa’s initiative to bring more higher education options to the region.
