What will I do in Noble Forward?

Go to college. No, not to a lecture. You’ll attend an online, competency-based program with Southern New Hampshire University or with UMass Global where you will complete projects that build specific skills toward your Bachelor’s degree. You’ll complete coursework on your own time at a location that’s convenient for you, including the option of our Forward facility with direct access to your coach and peers. Expect to spend 40-50 hours per month on coursework in order to stay on track.

Meet with your coach 1:1. You’ll check in with your coach weekly to discuss your assignments, progress toward your degree, challenges you’re facing and anything else you need help with to be successful in the program.

Meet with your peers. You’ll start with a small cohort of peers who you’ll meet with at sessions throughout the program. You’ll get to know each other, support one another, challenge each other, and make lifelong connections.

Additionally, you’ll have access to other resources while you’re in the program such as financial aid guidance, career and professional support, and more.
