Six starts a year

Unlike most traditional schools that only have two semesters a year, The American Women’s College has six accelerated sessions per year. These accelerated six week sessions start in September, November, January, February, April and June. That means you can start at any time of the year. And if you can’t start in one session, you can always defer to the next.


The only real requirement is that you have graduated from high school.


Our credits cost only $400 each. You need 120 credits to graduate. That means you can get a diploma for as little as $48,000. (That’s what many colleges charge for just one year!) And once you consider transferable credits, scholarships and grants, it could cost significantly less than that.
