A degree completion program is typically a program for people who once went to college but dropped out for one reason or another.  Later on in life they decide that earning a degree is important to them.  It might be triggered by a child going off to college, and the parent feels that it is now time for them to finish what they once started.  Some people feel that completing their degree helps them serve as a good role model for their children.  Students are often heard saying, “How can I expect my child to go to college when I didn’t finish myself.”   Another common motivation is to improve one’s career.  Some people find they cannot progress in their career or they don’t qualify for a job they want because they don’t have a bachelor’s degree.

Whatever the reason, the degree completion program is here to help.  Classes are offered in the evening in Medford or Online so a person doesn’t have to quit their job to return to school.  There are a variety of degree options available and an academic advisor to help you get started. 

If you’re interested in finishing your degree, please contact the appropriate program advisor.  If you're not sure who you should talk to, talk to the academic advisor listed below.  They will probably ask to evaluate your transcripts, so we can see where you stand and lay out a plan for you to finish whatever degree option you choose. 

You can start any term and go full-time or part-time, whichever suits you.  So, get the process started!  Give us a call or send an email.  We're happy to help you any way we can.
