Welcome to Accelerated Classes at RRCC
An accelerated course takes the content from a traditional 15-week, 3 or 4 credit class, and “compresses” it into a shorter time frame. Your course may meet everyday all day for a week, or 5 Saturdays. Our accelerated online classes take a 15-week online class and compresses into 7 weeks.
As you plan your schedule, be advised that accelerated classes require more work in a shorter amount of time. Be prepared to schedule extra time for homework and studying during an accelerated class.
Accelerated classes are designed to meet the needs of busy professionals and students with active lifestyles. Characteristics of a successful student include:
- Excellent time management skills
- Ability to learn on their own
- Commitment to their education
