The Expressway Program was established in 1999. It offers adult students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in just two and a half years in part-time and flexible formats online and at numerous convenient locations throughout northeastern Pennsylvania. Adult students can enroll eight times during the year, helping them fit shorter class sessions into their busy schedules. Depending on the program, classes are offered either online, one day a week or every third Saturday. The tuition rate is an affordable $350 per credit.

Transfer students who plan on attending are encouraged to bring their transcripts to receive an instant transfer evaluation. In addition, they will have the opportunity to talk with a counselor about all phases of the transfer process and financial aid.
