The University of Hartford makes it easy for adults who want to finish an associate degree in liberal arts or a bachelor's degree through our University Studies part-time degree completion program.

We have designed our programs specifically for adult students with the following benefits:

Fast: No need to wait with many start times during the year

Flexible: Apply work and life experience in addition to prior credits

Convenient: Take classes days, evenings, weekends, or online

Affordable: Our competitive pricing provides you with a private university education at public college rates. Our students are charged per credit up to 11 credits per semester which, in effect, represents a grant of approximately $7,500 per semester for students taking 9–11 credits.

Adult Express

Our newest format—Adult Express—consists of two 7-week courses falling within each traditional semester. This accelerated, streamlined format allows us to offer more courses and help our students make steady progress towards their degrees. Adult Express courses are open to part-time adult students only.
