At Alderson Broaddus we understand that you are a working professional, that is why we can cater your education to your needs.  You can progress through the program at your own pace, whether you are a part time student or you can manage a full time load, AB can create a schedule that works for you.

Full time students will be enrolled in two classes every 8 week session (6 credit hours per 8 weeks), for a total of 24-30 units for the year depending on eligibility and personal schedules. Students also have the ability to be enrolled part time at AB while still maintaining financial aid eligibility.  Students enrolled at a part-time status will take one class every 8 week session (3 credit hours per 8 weeks), and will have the opportunity to adjust their schooling to work around their busy lives.

Number of electives will depend on students transfer credits received. At any time during the process an Admissions Representative can request Educational Plans on behalf of the student and in most cases should take no more than 48 hours for a reply.
