How long will it take for me to complete my program?

Depending on the number of transfer credits from previous institutions, VWU students can complete an online undergraduate program in as little as one year. An online Master of Business Administration can be completed in as few as 12 months.

What is the schedule like?

Classes start six times a year, and terms are less than eight weeks long, so you’ll be able to complete a degree on your schedule. Most students can expect to work approximately 10-12 hours a week on coursework, but of course, that depends on a number of factors. What is always true, however, is that your professors stand ready to help you in any way you need.
