  • For the MyPath programs, the time commitment depends entirely on your drive and availability. For the traditional credit hour programs which have 8-week sessions, students generally find that they need to allot approximately 15 hours per week for a 3 unit course.
  • Most of our undergraduate degree programs are 120 units. Since UMass Global offers 6 accelerated 8-week sessions per year, you have plenty of opportunities to take classes that meet your needs. Taking 2 courses per session would allow you to finish in 3 1/3 years. Taking 1 course per session would allow you to finish in just under 7 years. Keep in mind that transfer credits from prior college coursework will help to reduce time to degree. Students driven to finish on a faster schedule can do so with MyPath programs which are self-paced.
