Looking to finish your degree with flexibility and convenience that allows even the busiest working adult the time to pursue their dream and live their purpose? California Baptist University Online and Professional Studies offers various accelerated degree programs that are tailored to the working adult. With online, hybrid (blended), and in-person night courses, students have the flexibility they need. 

Accelerated Degree Program

CBU Online is committed to bringing the highest degree of excellence to all of our students’. Our accelerated online programs allow students’ to complete their degree within 12 to 16 months depending on the degree program. Each semester consists of two different, eight-week sessions in which students can choose courses and finish in a short amount of time.

Our courses can be taken in three formats: online, blended and in person. Our online courses are taken completely online through the use of Blackboard 9.1. In person courses are traditional classroom settings that occur at our main campus located in Riverside or at one of our educational centers in Menifee, Silicon Valley, Clovis and soon - our Temecula Education Center. Hybrid/Blended courses are a mix of online and in person courses in which the course is blended: having both an online and in person component.

Students can take our courses at their own rate, which provides plenty of flexibility for the working adult. Taking 12 or more units per semester considers the student full time. Taking six or more units per semester considers the student half time, and also gives the student eligibility for financial aid.* Taking five units or few considers the student, ¼ time.
