Q: When can I start?

A: Classes begin every seven weeks.


Q: How many transfer credits do you accept?

A: The School of Professional Studies accepts up to 84 transfer credits from an accredited institution if the student receives a grade of “C” or better and the course is applicable to the student’s course of study.


Q: How will I know what classes to take and when I should take them?

A: Once you are accepted into one of our accelerated degree programs, you will be assigned a personal advisor who will guide you through the process of planning and registering for your courses.


Q: How many credits are needed to graduate?

A: To successfully complete the program and receive your degree, 120 credits are needed. 


Q: Do you offer prior learning credits?

A: Yes. For more information, please contact our admissions team at admissions@rosemont.edu or 610-526-2966.


Q: How many classes should I take at one time?

A: Each class is academically rigorous, requiring 15–20 hours of homework each week. Therefore, taking more than one class per seven weeks is generally discouraged. On occasion, students find it necessary to double up, or their daytime workload becomes more flexible, but these are exceptions to the rule.

Concentrating on one class at a time and progressing from one class to the next in sequence allows you to build on recently mastered principles in a manageable way.


Q:  What if something happens at work or home that stops me from going to school?

A: Our program is designed to take those factors into account. When a student encounters a scheduling problem, we allow the student to step-out of the program temporarily without penalty. Once the problem is solved you may re-enter.
