Is Future Forward CT a University? Are Future Forward’s programs accredited?

  • Future Forward CT is not a university. We partner with SNHU, an accredited university, to enable our students to earn associate and bachelor’s degrees. 
  • Southern New Hampshire University (or SNHU) is a private, nonprofit university established in 1932 and located in Manchester, New Hampshire.
  • Our university partner SNHU is regionally accredited. Regional accreditation is the highest form of accreditation, and credits earned through regionally accredited programs are the most likely to transfer.
  • Our students graduate from SNHU with an accredited associate or bachelor’s degree in their chosen field. 

What’s a coach? How am I matched with one?

  • Coaches are academic and career advisors. They help students identify their challenges, refine their study skills, and improve their performance.
  • From our first conversation with you, we are getting to know you, your situation, and your working style to match you with a supportive coach who sticks with you through your entire college journey. 
  • Students meet with their coach weekly to focus on reaching both academic and personal goals.

Credit transfer

Can I transfer credits out of the program?


Each institution has its own rules about credit transferability, and so we can't 100% guarantee that the credits you earn in the program will transfer fully to a future institution of your choice. 

I have college credits, can I transfer my credits?

  • If you’ve earned 60 or more credits from an accredited institution — or if you’ve earned an accredited AA or AS — you will likely be eligible to begin your studies directly with SNHU’s BA program (skipping the AA and significantly reducing your time to degree). 
  • If you have under 60 transferable credits, you have the option to have a course-by-course evaluation, and may be eligible to transfer credits to the “associate’s degree track”.

Costs and financial aid

How do I apply for Financial Aid and will I qualify?

  • Need help with FAFSA? Your enrollment advisor will help you every step of the way once you apply.

How much is tuition?


How much is tuition? $3300 per term without financial aid and scholarships. Most students are eligible for federal financial aid. Financial aid covers more than half of tuition for the average student.


What are the application requirements?


To apply to one of SNHU’s degree programs, students must have a GED or high school diploma. 

What are the courses like?


SNHU's competency-based programs are based on projects, not tests or lectures. Each course is filled with skills and concepts directly applicable to your degree. Some students say that our courses feel like working in a professional environment. You get to read and learn about a concept or skill, then demonstrate your mastery by completing a self-paced online project. Our students say that the online learning experience is well done and that working step by step through a degree builds not only knowledge and skills, but also confidence.

How long does it take to earn my degree?

  • On average, students can earn an associate degree in  9 to 12 months and a bachelor’s degree in 12 to 36 months.

How many projects (credits) do I need to graduate?

  • 1 project is equivalent to 1 credit. Students must complete 60 projects to earn their AA and complete 60 more projects to earn their BA.
