I have an Associate’s Degree

Holy Family University is pleased to expand our Community Bridge program to include our new Rapid Degree Bachelor of Arts in Psychology program. Students transferring an Associate’s Degree (A.A. or A.S.) can join our new cohort program immediately! In this program, you will only take classes that are required to graduate, you will be taking just major courses, the core capstone course, and an internship that you can do right at your place of employment.

What does this mean to you? With continuous enrollment in the cohort, you will:

  • Complete your degree requirements in as little as 20 months.
  • Complete your courses quickly: 8-week sessions, two end-of-semester weekend intensive courses.
  • Share class-time with committed, like-minded dedicated adult students like you!

I plan to transfer up to 84 credits

Even without an Associate’s degree, transfer students will benefit from the program format. We will be working with you to accelerate the completion of your Bachelor’s degree in the shortest time possible.

  • If you are transferring in between 60 and 84 credits, you are on a fast path to degree completion. With 84 credits, you may be able to finish your degree within 12-18 months.
  • Students transferring in fewer than 60 credits will be guided to the fastest path to success. You will receive individualized and tailored advising to help you earn your Bachelor of Arts in Psychology as quickly as possible.
