Adult Accelerated Learning Classes

Kirkwood Resource Center

1030 Fifth Ave. SE, Cedar Rapids


Adult Accelerated Learning classes are designed for working adults who want to further their education while balancing work and family. After earning an associate degree from Kirkwood, you can transfer to a four-year college or university to complete your bachelor’s degree.

You can take courses on evenings and weekends, once-a-week, and in five- and 10-week blocks. Outside projects and assignments complement the abbreviated class meeting schedule.

If you’re interested in Adult Accelerated Learning, you need a minimum of three years work experience, to be at least 21 years old and demonstrate competencies in reading, writing and math, either through COMPASS test scores or previous college experiences.
