IDEAL was the first accelerated degree program in Connecticut, beginning in 1988, and expanding into three locations throughout the state; Bridgeport, Stamford, and Waterbury. Accredited by the New England Association for Schools and Colleges, University of Bridgeport’s IDEAL Program gets you on an accelerated track to achieve your educational aspirations.
Many people, for one reason or another, began but did not complete an Associate's or Bachelor’s degree. The IDEAL (Innovative Degree Excellence in Accelerated Learning) Program allows you to finish your undergraduate degree and build upon what you have accomplished in your life. Everything about the IDEAL Program is geared to the way adults live and learn.
The IDEAL accelerated degree completion program gives working adults, age 23 or over, the opportunity to complete an Associate's or Bachelor's degree at a time and place convenient to you. You can choose from evening, weekend and online accelerated courses.
