School of Professional and Graduate Studies

Adult Degree Completion Program

Overview

You can pursue three professional undergraduate majors through the Adult Degree Completion Program in the School of Professional and Graduate Studies at Grace University. They are:

  • Business Leadership
  • Ministry Studies
  • Psychology

Students can attend classes year round to complete their degree requirements. Your completion time depends upon the number of credits transferred, but many students complete their degree within 16 months.

Classes meet just one night per week for five or six weeks each, from 6:00pm-10:00pm. You may be able to accelerate your completion time by adding some courses offered in an online format, also running for five or six weeks. Remaining requirements may be achieved by transferring previously earned credits, taking additional elective courses while enrolled, or through experiental/life experience and testing such as CLEP and DANTES. The compressed nature of these courses is consistent with standards of good practice for adult degree completion programs.

FAQ

Q:  What is the Adult Degree Completion Program?

A:  It’s a program designed to help busy adults finish their bachelor degree quickly and conveniently. Classes are offered year round and meet just one night per week. Some courses are now offered in an online format as well. 

Q:  If I have never been to college before, can I still enroll in the program?

A:  Absolutely! Because we offer both professional and general education courses, students with no previous college credit can still accomplish their goal of finishing a bachelor degree in a convenient evening format.  

Q: What majors can I choose?

A: Currently, we offer three majors: Business Leadership, Ministry Studies, and Psychology.

Q:  What are the entrance requirements?

A:  You can apply at any time during the year, and if accepted, enroll in the next available session. To be accepted into the Adult Degree Completion Program, the following items are required:

  • Application for Admission
  • Spiritual Life Reference Form (required for Ministry Studies applicants ONLY)
  • College transcripts (2.0 GPA or higher is recommended)

Q: How many of my past college credits will transfer?

A: Our credit transfer policy will maximize your previous academic work. You may also acquire credit from life experience (max: 36 hours) through the Documented Experiential Learning Analysis (DELA) or properly documented professional and/or military training. One of our Academic Advisors can help you determine how many past college credits are transferrable and whether you qualify for life experience credits.

Q: How long will it take me to finish my degree through this program?

A: The average student completes a degree in six semesters or approximately two years. Your completion time will vary based on how many credits are transferred. An academic advisor will be glad to do a review of your college transcripts and other available credits to determine an estimated time of completion for you.

Q: How much does it cost to get my degree?

A: That will depend on how many credit hours you need to fulfill your remaining degree requirements. Our goal is to help make your education as affordable as possible! Grace is very competitively priced, and we are happy to offer an interest-free monthly payment plan. Private scholarships (i.e. churches, foundations and other local businesses/corporations), federal and state grants & scholarships, federal student loans, corporate tuition assistance, and military benefits are also accepted.
