The Bachelor's in Early Childhood Development is designed to be a degree completion.  Students take their general education and approved early childhood prerequisite courses at their local community college, then transfer to SOU to complete the degree online.  This flexible scheduling is in response to the need for this degree by professionals in the field of early childhood.

We are working collaboratively with regional community colleges to develop transfer agreements - these agreements assist students by assuring they take the necessary classes to transfer smoothly into SOU's program.

We encourage students that are interested in this degree to contact us even if they are not in a program.  We can evaluate your current transcripts at no cost and give you an idea of how best to move forward. You may be closer than you think!
