ACT: Accelerated Transfer Program
Transfer in 2 Years
8 Week Sessions. Online or Online + 1 Night or Saturday
ACT is designed for serious, motivated students interested in transferring to a university well prepared and in an efficient manner. With appropriate counseling, it is possible to complete all university transfer requirements in under years.
Most classes are offered in 8-week blocks rather than the traditional 14 to 16 weeks. This allows students to complete 6 units (2 classes) or more each session. ACT students take fully online or hybrid classes (one evening or weekend meeting and 3 hours per week online). This mixed format allows adults with work, family or other obligations to still attend full-time.

How to Enroll
1. Complete Online Application
2. Take The College Assessment Test
The college assessment test is designed to help counselors assess your English and Math skills and determine a placement level. The ACT program offers only college-level English and Math courses. Prospective students are encouraged to take the assessment test as soon as possible to determine if prerequisite English or Math courses are necessary.
3. Visit a college counselor
Prospective and continuing students must consult with a counselor to ensure optimal educational planning. Students who have completed college coursework will need to consult with a counselor to evaluate transcripts and identify coursework for degree completion. Appointments can be scheduled in the Counseling Office or online.
4. Register in ACT classes for the Pathway of your choice
The following pages present the Fall 2014 course schedules for each of the ACT pathways. Complete two-year pathways will be available at the orientation. Students may register for ACT classes in the Admissions office or online.
Students need regular access to a computer with Internet access to complete their online class work. Computers with Internet access are available in the Heldman Learning Resource Center (HLRC). The ETUDES-NG course management system is used for the online component of the course.
