Degree Completion Program
Dr. John Hughes, Director
The Degree Completion Program is designed to
meet the needs of today’s working adult learners by
providing accelerated courses that are practical in
focus, interactive in teaching/learning format, and
delivered in a one evening (6:00-10:00 p.m.) per week
format that is as convenient as possible. The Degree
Completion Program can be completed in as few as

study selected and sufficient transfer units.
The major program is open to adults who have a
testimony of personal faith in Jesus Christ, a grade
point average of 2.0 or better in all prior academic

write at a collegiate level.
