Admissions requirements

The degree completion program is an accelerated, adult bachelor's degree program, encompassing the cohort programs, general education and elective courses (short term course series). Applicants who lack units to enter a degree completion cohort may enroll in the degree completion general education and elective courses.

  • Application for admissions (online or paper) and nonrefundable application fee
  • Official transcripts from each college or university attended (Veterans seeking benefits must submit a DD214 and military transcript)
  • Recommendation form
  • Two years post-secondary experience
  • Other specific requirements for each program (see degree completion programs page)

Admission into short term courses does not guarantee eligibility for a degree completion cohort. Upon completion of eligibility requirements, your advisor will help determine eligibility for your cohort start date.

Re-admission

To reenter a program with a cohort other than the cohort immediately following, the student must reapply by completing a Degree Completion Re-admission Form. The academic advisor will determine if the student may reenter and if any conditions apply for readmission. Once approved, the student may enroll in the cohort following the last course successfully completed. The student will be charged at the current tuition rate for any course repeated.
