Accelerated Degree Completion Program

The two-year on-campus Accelerated Degree Completion Program (ADCP) leads to a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Computer Science or Management Studies from Boston University.

The accelerated degree program is uniquely designed to match the energy and talents of professionals who have risen in the business environment without having completed their bachelor’s degree, offering a cohesive, traditional college experience for motivated adults. Students enter the program as part of a cohort, and graduate together as a class—meanwhile benefiting from strong personal and professional connections, career networking opportunities, and the University’s recreational resources.

The degree completion program’s concentrated, structured course of study makes it possible for students who have already earned 64 credits elsewhere to complete a BU undergraduate degree in just two years—four semesters and two summers. To meet the needs of busy adults and reduce commuting time, this campus-based program includes a combination of traditional classroom and blended formats.

Additionally, students who achieve a GPA of 3.0 or higher in the program are guaranteed admission—with advanced standing—to MET graduate degree programs in the departments of Computer Science or Administrative Sciences (business and management).

Typically, application to the accelerated degree completion program requires a minimum of 64 transferable college semester credits, though students with as few as 52 transferable credits will be considered for admission. In the event a student is admitted with fewer than 64 credits, academic advisors are available for consultation regarding how to successfully complete the credit difference.
