You want a college degree, but the thought of balancing work and family is intimidating.
We can help.

Kirkwood offers a unique set of accelerated classes designed for working adults. Classes meet in the evenings, once weekly, in five- and 10-week blocks. And, when you’re ready to go for a bachelor’s degree, Kirkwood’s Adult Accelerated Learning classes transfer to many local four-year schools.

To qualify, you must:

  • Be at least 21 years of age.
  • Have a minimum of three years’ work experience.
  • Demonstrate college-level competencies in reading and writing.
