Reach Your Goal Quicker

Why spend up to 16 weeks in class when you can get the same college credits in either 6 or 8 weeks Terms? We’re committed to keeping your classes running and your education on track. While these online courses do not meet at any specific time or place, they do have weekly deadlines throughout the session. The content taught in a 6 or 8-week class offers the same amount of content that is taught over a 15-16 week regular semester at other universities.

It is easy to get started if you can answer “yes” to any of the questions below:
Question #1:

Do you need a flexible schedule to accommodate job and home responsibilities?

Question #2

Would you like to earn college credit without leaving your home or workplace?

Question #3

Can you work well at your own pace and still meet deadlines?

Question #4

Are you self-motivated?

Online courses at Leighton University may be a great option for you. If you are self-motivated, work well independently, and meet deadlines easily, then our flexible delivery of college courses using the latest technologies can put an associate’s degree at your fingertips. All courses cover the same content as traditional, on-campus classes offered in other universities.  All our courses are taught by Leighton University faculty who have carefully been selected. Activities such as group study sessions or field trips may be a part of some courses.
