Each program is offered in a cohort-style learning format, in which students begin their course of study with a group of their peers and proceed through the program together. Classes are offered in the evening and online to help students meet the demands of work, family, and their studies.

Prior learning credits are available for work and life experience. Additional college credits may be awarded via the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).
