St. Ambrose makes it possible for students at different points on their educational path—from those who have earned a handful of credits to those with associate degrees—to complete their bachelor’s degrees at a flexible pace. In the process, students better their lives, not only by improving their earning power, but by growing as confident professionals and empowered leaders.

A degree can be earned by taking classes in multiple delivery formats. Classes fit into full-time work schedules and programs are sensitive to students with family commitments. With our individual focus, our advisors can work with you, as special work or family needs arise. You can balance family, work and your educational pursuits on a reasonable schedule.

With input from our students, we continuously improve the Ambrose learning and service experience.


Time is money

Ten years after earning her associate’s degree, Brandi Chapman ’08 wanted to return to college to pursue a four-year degree. With a family and a full-time position as a personal banker at First Federal Savings Bank in Burlington, Iowa, she wanted a program that would offer her a combination of both value and flexibility. “No other college had a program like ACCEL that offers classes evenings and weekends, and gives students the freedom of taking one course at a time.”
