An Expedited Degree Worthy of Your Knowledge and Experience 


Jennifer Perez

As I watched my 5-year-old daughter cheer me on from the stands at graduation, I thought, “We did it, Little Girl!” The feeling of empowerment was overwhelming, and that feeling has not diminished.

Going back to school after 20 years... hands down one of the best decisions I have ever made. In just 3 years, I completed my BAAS, and now I am ready to go for round two. Grad School, here I come!

Starting down the road to my degree was not an easy step to take, but I did it anyway. Today, with my BAAS in hand, I have a job that I love, am in graduate school, and have miles of opportunity before me.

I needed a degree that recognized the years of learning I brought with me. The BAAS did that, and I was able to graduate in record time. It felt like the program was designed just for me!

-Robert Tyson


After completing the BAAS program as a wife, mother of three, business owner, and employee, I feel accomplished and confident; there is no dream too high for me to pursue.

I had wanted my degree for so long, but life seemed to always send detours and obstacles my way. The BAAS worked with me, not against me, to earn my degree by using the knowledge I already had.
