Where is your heart leading you?
The heart and mind should be involved in every major decision you make. Returning to school is a mindful decision. One that should take into account the best options for you, your family, and your lifestyle. But it’s also a heart decision. One that prioritizes your dreams, your passions, and the life you deserve to live. When we’re mindful of where our hearts are leading us, big things happen. The heart guides. The mind decides. That’s what it means to be heart and mind aligned.

With flexible program formats and degrees that can be completed in as few as 15 months, we fully understand that you don’t have large amounts of undivided time to give. But you always have minutes.

They thrive because they're able to live their lives while also earning a degree. And when our graduates look back, they can proudly say, “I did it. I did it in minutes.”
