The Adult College Curriculum for Education and Leadership (ACCEL) Program allows you to develop yourself, your knowledge base and career possibilities. Whether you're a recent graduate of an associate's degree program or an experienced professional looking to further your career, ACCEL will help you meet your goals.

ACCEL allows students to complete their degree in a timely manner while continuing to work. Our accelerated courses are offered in multiple delivery formats. St. Ambrose offers five bachelor's degree programs especially suited to the career goals of working adults. Because ACCEL is designed for the professional working adult, you're learning with other students who share similar work and life experiences. Our discussion-driven, adult learning environment develops relevant business and communication skills that are directly applicable to the workplace.

Here's why

  • If you started down one path originally and now prefer another, we can bring it all together in terms of credits, maximizing your time investment, or helping you align two different interests—say, in biology and business.
  • St. Ambrose offers a range of tuition and financial aid options. Students can pay their tuition through financial aid deferment, corporate tuition reimbursement program and installment plans; they also have access to financial aid like Federal Pell Grants, Federal Subsidized/Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, and Iowa Tuition Grants.
  • St. Ambrose has a longstanding partnership with Genesis Health System, which allows our health science students to learn and practice in a quality health care environment. 
  • A St. Ambrose degree not only benefits your career, but can also set an example for your children.
