Students with an Associate degree in Early Childhood Education can complete the Elementary Education program in as little as 27 months. Students with no prior college credit or who do not have an Associate degree in Early Childhood Education begin with a customized schedule of 1000-2000 level courses to prepare them for their upper-level education courses. The lower-level courses can be taken one or two at a time.

Once students progress to 3000-4000 upper-level education courses, they join a cohort of fellow Elementary Education students. Once in a cohort, students progress through the program together. The community formed through the cohort is an invaluable resource to Elementary Education students during their studies and far beyond. Upper-level classes are taken one at a time.
