Acceleration of University Study

It is possible for students to satisfy requirements for baccalaureate degrees in less than the traditional four years (eight regular academic year semesters). Ways of accomplishing this include: enrolling in university classes while a junior or senior in high school; exceeding the normal course load at Colorado Mesa University or elsewhere; challenging by examination courses in which competence has previously been attained; earning credit by testing through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES and/or Advanced Placement; obtaining credit for prior learning (competency credit). Additional information may be obtained from IRIS, faculty advisors, or the Registrar’s Office.
