Complete your bachelor’s degree in a flexible format built around your busy life.

Adult Degree Completion

Our Adult Degree Completion (ADC) programs are designed for students who have several years of life experience and some previous college coursework. We welcome transfer credit from other regionally accredited institutions, even if it was completed several years ago. In the ADC program, you’ll take advantage of:

  • Courses offered year-round, most in eight-week modules
  • Small classes with peers who are committed to obtaining their degrees
  • Personalized advising to guide you throughout your academic experience  and help you on your career path
  • An affordable private education with financial aid, deferred billing and payment plans available
  • Convenient evening, weekend and online class options
