Accelerated Programs

An Accelerated Program is a program leading to a recognized credential that is offered in half or less than half the time over which it may normally be offered, as measured by the number of program weeks.

A program must be designated by Advanced Education as an Accelerated Program. That is, an educational institution cannot self-declare its program as 'accelerated'. For any program to be designated as accelerated, the designation request must come from the educational institution.

Information regarding loan limits for Accelerated Programs is found in the Annual Loan Limits section.
