Degree Completion Programs

“We put you back in the classroom to finish your bachelor’s degree on an accelerated timeline.”

Complete Your Degree without Compromising Your Other Responsibilities


Accelerated courses normally meet one evening per week for 3 to 4 hours, or in some cases for extended weekend sessions.


Each semester is composed of two 8-week sessions in which students typically take two classes each eight weeks.

Special Classtimes

Human Services, Business Administration, and Elementary Education courses are offered on nights and weekends, and some courses are offered online.
