Do you need a bachelor's degree to move forward in your career or fulfill your goals?
We recognize that you may need to earn a bachelor's degree to advance in your career, but may not be able to make a commitment to a traditional class schedule. That's why we have developed the off-campus bachelor's degree completion programs, designed for working people who already have an associate's degree. With today's economy, many students are choosing to complete their first two years of college at a community college before going on to a four-year institution. Finishing a bachelor's degree in this unique off-campus program makes a private four-year college education affordable and within reach for many of these students.
