The Trinity Accelerated Degree Program was launched in 2016 to allow students to complete their Bachelor’s degree a semester early. Open to majors whose requirements allow for flexibility of the academic plan, the program encourages hard working and dedicated students to begin their post-baccalaureate careers or graduate degree programs early.
Students in the Trinity Accelerated Degree Program fulfill all of the requirements of the college and their major by taking six courses per semester instead of five. Careful advising allows them to restructure prerequisites so that they can complete all requirements in seven semesters.

Anna Maria College designed the Accelerated Bachelor Degree Program to allow students to finish their bachelor degree in 3.5 years and essentially save one full semester of undergraduate tuition. The accelerated program provides students with benefits such as early registration and the option to stay on campus during the eighth semester so they can enjoy the senior year activities with their peers while beginning their master’s degree at Anna Maria. Students will be expected to meet with an academic advisor each semester to ensure they stay on track with their program requirements.
What do I gain by joining the Accelerated Degree Program?
Joining the Accelerated Degree Program allows students to complete their Bachelor’s degree program in seven semesters. If they go on to graduate school, they can remain on campus and start a semester early.
Students in the accelerated program are allowed to take extra credits at no extra cost. They may take up to 19 credits at the regular tuition rather than 17.
To ensure they get into the classes they need to finish early, students accepted into the program are allowed to register on the first days of registration.
Graduate students will be allowed to remain on campus during what would have been the second semester of their senior year.
To qualify for the program, students must have and maintain a cumulative 3.5 GPA. They must have the approval of their Academic Advisor that this program is achievable in their major. They will be expected to take six courses per semester. Some students may be required to take a summer course at their own cost if they join the program later than their sophomore year or have special requirements in their majors. They will also be expected to meet with their advisors to make sure that they remain on track in the program.
