What does ACT offer?

Our program takes into consideration the demands of an adult’s hectic work and family life. ACT’s approach to curriculum and scheduling classes complements rather than complicates our student’s lives.

ACT offers you:

  • Faculty & Staff Dedicated to Your Success
  • Accelerated Courses
  • 2 Nights per week + 1 Saturday per month
  • Graduation in Just 2 Years
  • Successful Transfer to a University

Five (5) Week courses

Almost all ACT courses are five weeks in duration. Courses are taught on an accelerated basis, one class at a time. At the end of a year, including summer, students earn a full year’s credit. This allows our students to graduate in approximately two years. What a great idea! Our students join the workforce or increase their value in the workforce more quickly than the traditional courses allow.

Only Two Nights Per Week and One Saturday Per Month

Realizing that our students have hectic lives, ACT offers you an opportunity to graduate in two years by attending classes two nights per week and one Saturday per month. You still have time for your work and family responsibilities.

Graduation in Two Years.

For the first time in your educational life, it is possible for you to attain your graduation goal in a very short period of time. The traditional course offerings would probably allow you to graduate with your associates degree in four or five years if you were a part-time student. ACT gives you an opportunity to graduate in just two years.

Transfer to a College or University Quickly and Effectively.

ACT classes are approved and are ready for transfer to CSU and UC campuses, as well as other public and private colleges and universities. Some universities not only accept all of our courses but also continue the ACT idea within their own school.

What majors does ACT offer?

You may select from two program options. Both options lead to an Associate in Arts Degree in Liberal Arts.

The Business Transfer Option is designed for certification of general education requirements and fulfills major requirements in business for transfer to CSU and UC campuses, as well as many other public and private colleges and universities.

The General Studies Transfer Option is designed to complete the general education requirements of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) and the CSU Certified General Education Plan. When you complete this option, you will be eligible to transfer to most UC or CSU campuses, as well as most private and public colleges and universities.
