Academic Offerings

Programs Offered Through the Adult Degree Program include:

Sessions Instead of Semesters

Typically, Adult Degree Program students take courses in sessions versus the traditional 16-week semesters. There are five sessions per year, and each session is eight weeks long. There are two sessions per 16-week semester, therefore, Adult Degree Program students can complete 12 credits per academic semester. Students may earn additional credits by taking courses in the evening in the traditional 16-week semester format.

Convenient Online, Saturday & Evening Classes

Several of our Adult Degree Programs can now be completed fully online, or students can take classes online, on-campus or both!  Saturday classes meet every Saturday for eight weeks. Morning classes begin at 8:15 a.m. and conclude by 11:45 a.m. Afternoon classes begin at 12:30 p.m. and conclude by 4 p.m. (Some majors in the Adult Degree Program require select evening classes. Evening classes are offered in the 16-week format and typically meet once a week beginning at 6 p.m.) 

An Affordable Education: Competitive Tuition + Aid, Discounts, Employer Reimbursement & More

Adult Degree Program students are eligible for tuition discounts, financial aid, employer reimbursement & military benefits.
