New reason why you should complete your college degree

WORKING ADULT: Our Integrated Leadership degree
completion program will help you finish your bachelor's degree
The U.S. economy will generate 55 million job openings by 2020, according to the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce. Of those, 65 percent will require some training beyond a high-school education. And at the current rate of college completion in the U.S., the Center predicts 5 million jobs won't be filled because workers will lack required post-secondary credentials.

To help bridge this gap, we're introducing a new program this fall to help working adults finish their bachelor's degree and advance in their careers. Our Integrated Leadership degree completion program is for students who already have college credits and want to complete their degrees quickly. Students can complete their degree in as a little as a year, depending on transfer credits and academic course load.

This program is ideal for students who have a minimum of 45 college-level credits with a grade of C or higher from a previously attended college or university. In total, students have the opportunity to apply up to 90 college level credits toward their degree. The program will be available in accelerated eight-week courses, and will have six start dates throughout the year. Courses will be offered on campus or online, so you can choose what best works with your schedule and responsibilities.
