A study group working together. To learn more about Beal's accelerated degree programs give us a call.
Beal College operates on accelerated 8-week Mods (semesters), allowing you to finish college faster and enter the workforce

Accelerated 8-week Terms and 6 Start-Dates Per Year Lets You Complete Your Education Faster

We have designed our course calendar to be efficient, allowing you the opportunity to complete 6 mini-semesters that are 8-weeks long, and attend school year-round. That way you can complete your degree much faster than at a traditional 4-year college. Alternatively, you could take part-time school, evening or online courses. Modify the schedule to meet your needs.

The Mod System Makes for Faster Semesters

Beal College’s Modular System makes life easier! Beal College is best known for its unique class scheduling system, called a Mod System, where classes run half as long as regular semesters. Full-time students still complete the same number of college credits per year but focus on fewer classes at a time.

How Beal College’s Mod system stands out:

  • Students attend school year-round, skip all of the school breaks and graduate faster
  • Full time students attend just 2 days per week!
  • Classes are scheduled Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday
  • No Friday classes for all majors!
  • The 12-month school year is divided into 6 individual terms; each term is 8-weeks long
  • Many programs offer evening classes, in addition to day classes
  • Certain programs offer distance education or hybrid options
  • All Gen Ed classes online!
  • Earn your certificate in 14 months or less.
  • Most Associate Degrees are 18 months or less!
  • Earn your Bachelor’s in just 32 months!
