Accelerated Short-Term Courses

Center for Accelerated & Professional Education (CAPE)

The Center for Accelerated and Professional Education helps students and professionals complete general education courses as they prepare to begin undergraduate degrees, who are interested in obtaining associate degrees or who are life long learners. 

Need to complete a program pre-requisite course?

We prepare you for your degree. Many of our bachelor's degree-completion programs have pre-requisite course requirements. The good news is, you can fulfill them right here at MNU!

Common pre-requisite courses include but are not limited to:

  • Lifespan Development Course
  • Communication Courses
  • Biblical Perspectives, or Spiritual Development
  • College Algebra
  • Social Responsibility Courses
  • Scientific Literacy Courses
  • Critical Thinking Courses
  • Probability & Statistics

Need to earn a few credits or raise your GPA?

Do you have less than 60 transferable hours of college credit or did you previously earn a low GPA? Our accelerated short-term classes can help you meet these requirements. As you complete short-term classes and earn a course grade of C+ or higher, your cumulative GPA will be raised as well, positioning you to meet your program requirements and earn your degree.
