Adult Degree Completion Program

The Adult Degree Completion Program was created for the working adult who needs to finish a bachelor's degree to get ahead in his or her career. It was designed to be customized to fit your particular needs, academic interests and existing schedule.

Earning Credit for Prior Knowledge and Experience
There are numerous ways to earn college credit outside the traditional classrooms and we will work with you to take advantage of all the methods that are right for you. Many adult students spend years in the workforce or military developing valuable skills, earning certifications, taking continuing education programs, and obtaining licenses for specific functions. At MTSU we have developed a means to turn this prior knowledge into college credit to complete a degree. Students may earn as much as 30 hours credit which equals one year of college credit for what they already know.

Free Evaluation and Consultation
To find out if the Adult Degree Completion Program is a fit for you please complete the form on the right side of the page. Our academic professionals will review your transcripts, discuss your background and goals, and prepare an academic plan designed to let you graduate as quickly as possible. If your prior training and experience qualifies you could earn up to 30 hours of academic credit for what you already know.  The evaluation is completely free and allows you to understand exactly what you would need to do to finish your degree.

We understand that working adults need as much flexibility as possible in their education program to fit it all around your other responsibilities. To accommodate this we offer classes online, on campus, by correspondence, in accelerated formats, in hybrid formats, in the evening, and other means to allow you to finish your degree on your own terms. This flexibility has allowed hundreds of adults to graduate from this program in the past few years.

Available Degree Programs
While a student in the Adult Degree Completion Program may earn a degree in any field offered at MTSU, most students choose one of these degree programs because of the added flexibility that they provide. All of our degree programs provide an opportunity for several majors and areas of specialization.
