The Next Step Program provides a fast-track alternative delivery program that is designed for the mature working adult student. Through this program, adult students may work toward an associate of science degree in General Studies (University Parallel).
Next Step is organized around a cohort concept, and students attend classes two nights each week. Classes consist of online and interactive television formats, and students progress as a cohesive group. Classes are held in 7 week blocks, allowing students continual progress throughout the program.
