Complete your degree at your own pace.

No two journeys are alike. At Anderson University, we understand. And it’s why we’re on the cutting-edge of academic delivery and instruction–and why we created FLEX Degrees. We offer six competency-based education programs, which are designed to measure what you learn versus how many weeks you take a class.




Flexible. Innovative. Cost-effective.

An AU Flex degree allows you to take courses in your major at your own pace. You can complete those courses in as few as five weeks.


How Flex Works

With a choice of two pathways of learning, you’ll work on projects with dedicated faculty members who give you one-on-one attention. Your coach and your content expert will guide your journey at AU.


Need More Convincing?

Consider this: if you finish your first two courses within a five-week span, you’ll be able to take up to two additional courses at no additional cost.
