REACH YOUR DEGREE GOALS WITH FLEXIBLE OPTIONS

By splitting your coursework between Hiram and one of our partner schools, you’ll earn your degree in a way that is both affordable and convenient for your busy life.

HOW DO COMMUNITY COLLEGE PARTNERSHIPS WORK?

After successfully earning your associate degree from one of our community college partners, you’ll finish your bachelor’s degree by taking coursework from Hiram College faculty at the same community college location you were already attending. At Hiram, we make it easy for you to transfer up to 64 credit hours from the community college toward your Hiram bachelor’s degree. Our flexible online, evening and weekend classes, held in 8-week sessions, make it possible for you to still manage work and family.

FLEXIBLE CLASSES MAKE LIFE POSSIBLE

Hiram makes attending classes easy. Classes are held in blended format, meeting on community college campuses every other weekend and requiring some work to be completed online, giving you two weeks between class meetings to complete assignments and balance work, family and schoolwork. Some courses that are solely online are also available in eight-week sessions. Take a combination of blended and online courses to build a schedule that makes sense for you and allows you to stay on track with your degree.
