Earn a degree by balancing courses with your busy schedule

Millikin’s Flexible Learning, formerly known as PACE, is for individuals who are looking for a variety of paths to earn their degree. Classes take place in a variety of formats, including online, in-person, during the daytime, evenings and weekends. Students also have access to tools that will help them find success after graduation, including Millikin’s Center for Academic and Professional Performance. Flexible learning allows students to take courses at Millikin (part-time or full time) and pay a flat fee for each course

Flexible Learning Course Structure

Many on campus Flexible Learning courses are delivered in an accelerated format, typically lasting 7-10 weeks (depending on major) for a 3 credit hour course. Fewer weeks are generally required for 1 or 2 credit hour courses and more weeks for 4 credit hour courses.

On campus classes generally meet only one night per week from 6:00 P.M.-10:00 P.M. Additionally courses may include online meetings or courses that meet on weekends. In accelerated courses, the first assignment is prepared prior to and due at the first night of class meeting. The final course requirement will be due one week after the last meeting night of class. Consequently, students should anticipate some overlap in coursework as one class ends and another begins.

Students are expected to devote an estimated 15-20 hours per week to outside work per 3 credit hour course. Once admitted, a Flexible Learning student typically will begin the courses that are required of all Millikin University students in order to graduate (See University Studies course requirements and Electives). After the majority of University Studies requirements are complete, students will begin to take courses in their major.
