PROGRAM TIMELINE / FORMAT
If you have completed 45-59 units at another institution, you can start Accelerate. This plan offers low-cost, self-paced courses starting at $149, and individualized coaching and academic planning. In addition to this, Accelerate also provides evaluation of previous professional training and certification for possible units, a support system of classmates to complete courses together, and walks you through the admissions application process to enroll in our next level, Advance.
ADVANCEWhen you have completed 60-72 units, you can start the Advance program. Advance offers five-week courses at $150 per course (financial aid is available), with the option of a face-to-face or online format. You will work closely with your academic advisor to create a personalized education plan.
Simpson University’s distinctive ASPIRE program offers two formats to complete your degree. If you have 72-84 units, you can start the 12-month program which offers degrees in Business Management and Organizational Leadership (each with a number of emphases from which you can choose). If you start the ASPIRE program with less than 84 units, you will participate in the Attain program after completing your ASPIRE program.
Our 16-month degree programs include Psychology and Liberal Studies, as well as our online programs: Psychology (Online) and Organizational Leadership (Online). You are able to start these programs with 60-84 units. If you start with less than 84 units, this format allows for students to take outside courses concurrently with the ASPIRE program.
If you began the ASPIRE program with less than 84 units, the Attain program is for you. Immediately following your ASPIRE program coursework (36 total units) is completed, you will work with your Advisor to create a specialized educational plan to complete any remaining outside units. You will be able to take 5-week long courses at $150 with the option of face-to-face or online formats.
