School Notes:

  • Our eighteen-month Junior and Senior level program allows you to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting, International Business, Government Contract Management, Management, or Information Systems simply by attending classes on Saturday or two evenings each week.
  • Adults have different lifestyles and learning styles than most college age students. Here at Potomac College we recognize this difference and work diligently to enhance the adult learning process. Our carefully crafted curriculum emphasizes participatory learning through student discussions, case studies, and team projects, all of which encourage students to be active learners rather than passive listeners.
  • Within each degree program, a common core of courses provides a solid foundation for work in that field. This core is complemented by a series of courses in specialized areas to enable each student to pursue a program of studies that will provide enhanced professional and personal growth.
  • We offer an exceptional curriculum as well as a variety of classes tailored specifically to working adult learners. Never will you find filler classes or boring lectures here; Potomac College utilizes classroom discussions, case studies, and team projects to help students get the most from their academic program. An educational opportunity such as this comes around once-in-a-lifetime. It’s never too late to achieve your dreams.
  • Potomac College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
