Mission

The Adult Degree Program addresses the needs of working adults through an innovative, individualized program of study. ADP students tailor a program of study unique to them that focuses on their prior learning experiences and future professional and educational goals.

Admission

Applicants must have a minimum of 30 transferable credit hours with a grade of "C" or better for each credit hour of college work. Applicants should be 22 or older.

With very limited exceptions, students in the Individualized Study major (the Adult Degree Program's academic major) cannot transfer to another major on campus.

Degrees Offered

ADP students have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Individualized Study (B.I.S.), a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in individualized study or a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in individualized study. The General Education  core requirements differ by degree.
