RVCC’s New Adult Fast Track Program Makes Earning a Two-Year Degree Possible!
I think it’s safe to say that life is busy for adults. Whether it’s a demanding job or the hectic nature of family life, the day-to-day hustle can easily take us off course, especially when it comes to advancing our education. However, with the ever-increasing competition in the workforce, an educational investment is critical for making and keeping yourself marketable. Now you can stop thinking about going back to school and enroll in RVCC’s new Adult Fast Track Program. In only two years, you can earn an associate degree by taking online and evening courses. Click here to register for a special Information Session on Tuesday, June 18, at 7 pm at RVCC’s Conference/Events Center, where representatives will walk you through the program and answer your questions.
In an effort to better serve adult students, RVCC broke the mold on how traditional college classes are offered, creating an intensive seven-week program so adults can accelerate their roadmap toward earning a degree. Students enrolled in RVCC’s Adult Fast Track Program take classes year-round with breaks for holidays and a summer vacation in August. The courses are offered online and through traditional classroom instruction at the College’s Branchburg campus.
The program offers two degree options: an Associate of Arts in Communication Studies or an Associate of Arts in Social Science. Through a reciprocal arrangement with Ramapo College, students wishing to continue their studies can smoothly transfer into Ramapo College’s Bachelor of Arts degree programs in communications or social sciences. You will be able to take Ramapo classes at RVCC’s campus to complete your Bachelor of Arts in two years, taking evening and online classes.
The program is specially designed to serve the needs of adults who are juggling work and family responsibilities. You’ll receive personalized attention and academic support to help you succeed. A dedicated advisor—who understands the special needs of adult students—will not only help you make a successful transition back to school, but also provide support throughout your time at RVCC. You can also take advantage of tutoring online or in person. Additionally, you have an opportunity to earn a degree in less than two years if you have earned credits from other accredited colleges or from CLEP exams.
