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
(6-10 p.m.) per week schedule that is as convenient as possible. The Degree Completion Program can be completed in
as few as 20 months, depending upon the major course of 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 work from an accredited college, and an ability to write at a collegiate level.
Students in the Degree Completion Program complete their major coursework in cohorts that allow them to work on
one class at a time and to meet with the same classmates throughout the entire program. This provides an excellent
opportunity for encouragement, support, accountability, camaraderie, and lasting relationships, while at the same time
moving students toward completion of their educational goals.
The classes in the Degree Completion Program are kept small (typically 6-18 students), allowing for personalized
attention. Personalized discipleship enhances spiritual maturity, and personalized scholarship encourages the pursuit of
individual academic excellence, as unto the Lord.
