ACCCA Doctoral Matrix

 

Would getting a doctorate help boost your career? Are you considering taking “the big step”?

ACCCA's Doctoral Matrix offers a list of universities with doctoral programs. Many provide courses at night and on weekends and encourage working community college administrators to apply for admission. This list is only a guide to give you an idea of what’s out there. For example, the length of time it will take to complete a program depends on the availability of courses, how quick a student progresses through the requirements and writes a dissertation. Also, be sure to check with the institution for updates on cost and prerequisites.

If you would like to have your college listed in our matrix, please email the webmaster with your program information.
