Student Testimonial

“There’s a lot of overlap between my degree and work, so I feel almost everything I’ve learned thus far has been something I can apply in my day-to-day activities. I’m learning a lot about myself and my culture, not to mention how to communicate and honor other people I come across both in work and life.”

~Rebekah Williams, Pearson Academic Advisor, and Master's Student

Student Testimonial

I have nothing but amazing things to say about every person I’ve encountered. They are exceptionally supportive, and I can tell that they truly want to see me succeed. They’ve gone above and beyond to help me be the best that I can be—cheering me on from the very beginning—from monthly meetings with my advisor to having access to the Student Support team. Accelerated Pathways has offered me more support than I’ve ever gotten at a traditional four-year university.
