Adult Fast Track

Accelerated Programs for Motivated Adults

The College of DuPage Adult Fast Track program (AFT) is an accelerated program for adults 21 years and older who are seriously committed to continuing their education, but require accommodation for their busy lifestyles. While the Adult Fast Track program is intensive and rigorous, it is manageable for individuals who are highly motivated and self-disciplined. Students may take individual selected courses or complete an entire degree in this alternative format.

Degrees and Certificates Available

Students may earn an Associate in Arts (AA) degree, an Associate in Applied Sciences (AAS) degree in Management, and a Certificate in Management, Supervision, Entrepreneurship or Organizational Leadership. More degrees and certificates will be available in the future. Students may also enroll in a variety of core general education and/or elective courses that can then be used to satisfy the requirements of other degrees or certificate programs.

Course Scheduling

AFT courses start and end on uniform dates during both the first and second eight-week segments of the fall and spring semester. (One eight-week segment is offered during the summer semester, as well.) Classes typically meet in the evenings or on Saturday mornings. AFT courses are offered at five convenient locations: the main campus in Glen Ellyn, the Addison, Carol Stream, Naperville and Westmont Centers.

Admission Criteria

  • Students must be 21 years of age or older.
  • Students enrolled in traditional COD programs may enroll in AFT courses if they meet the age requirement.
  • Students of other colleges or universities attending COD are also invited to enroll in AFT courses if they are at least 21 years of age.

Adult Fast Track students are subject to placement testing and prerequisite requirements. We encourage all AFT students to begin working toward the completion of their degree-level math requirement(s) early in their studies, and to complete a degree-level math course(s) by the time they have earned 30 college credit hours.

Spotlight

Angel Kearns Adult Fast Track

“None of this would be possible without the dedication College of DuPage has for its students. I feel smarter. I feel like a better person. I’m going to contribute something. This experience has taught me that I’m stronger than I thought. Coming in, I wasn’t sure how I was going to do this. It has made me a better, stronger woman and a role model for my children.”


  • Rita Kuzmenko Adult Fast Track

    “The Fast Track program is created to better fit into the schedule of working adults. However, the courses are not easier and, in fact, students are often doing the work of an entire semester in one eight-week course. Prioritization is crucial,” Rita Kuzmenko said. “But when a person finishes the program, they have truly earned their degree. The Fast Track Program prepared me well for the degrees I earned afterward.”


  • Susan Neustrom Adult Fast Track

    “The lesson I learned from my experience at COD is that the value of education is not only what you learn in the textbooks. Book knowledge is great, but the real value of education is that it opens your mind to possibilities, allows you to reflect on your inner self, and helps you to discover your true potential and purpose in life.”

    The application for the Master of Social Work (MSW) program is with the Centralized Application Service.

    • A completed bachelor degree an institution with full regional accreditation for that degree

    Individuals holding a bachelor’s degree in social work received from an accredited CSWE program may request consideration for advanced standing. Applicants who completed their bachelor’s degree in social work from a CSWE-accredited program more than seven years prior to date of application are encouraged to take SOCW 620 Research Methods I.

    • A cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale, for the last two years of undergraduate study, or demonstration that the applicant is able to maintain a 3.0 in graduate study. This can be demonstrated if a student has successfully completed two or more graduate courses.

    -Human Relations

    Deficits in any of these areas will not prohibit admission; however, the courses need to be completed with documentation of completion provided prior to enrollment into the program.
