The Adult Degree Completion Program at Grace University allows busy adults to complete their college degree in a convenient format alongside other adult students. In Adult Degree Completion (ADC), each class meets just one weeknight each week from 6:00-10:00 P.M. Most students in our program chose to take one course at a time, allowing dedicated focus and emphasis on each course to maximize learning. All students complete classes in general education, open electives, and the core program for their major. 

The Adult Degree Completion Program currently offers the following programs in entirely onsite or entirely online formats:
