ACC 8-Week Classes & Degrees

8 Week Classes - Learning designed to accelerate your success.

Students taking 8-week classes get focused learning in a format that lets you take fewer classes at once, while staying on track to graduate. If you are looking for a way to complete classes quickly, accelerated classes help you finish in half the time.

  • Open up your semester plan by finishing your important prerequisites early.
  • Take core curriculum courses back-to-back. For example, take History 1301 in the first eight-week session followed by History 1302 in the second eight-week session.
  • New @ ACC Northridge! Earn a transfer-ready Business Administration degree entirely through an accelerated 8-week course plan.
