ACADEMIC PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS


DEGREE COMPLETION PROGRAM

DeWoody, Dean

 

The Degree Completion Program provides non-traditional education opportunities for adult students through accelerated degree programs at various locations in central and northwest Arkansas and online. The Degree Completion Program enables working adults with two or more years of college to earn a bachelor's degree in less than two years. Most classes meet one evening per week or online.

Working together with faculty from other areas of the university, the Degree Completion Program offers majors in Organizational Management, Business Administration and Liberal Arts. Program requirements are met through traditional college course work, credit by exam, credit for prior learning, successful completion of the specified sequence of courses in the major field, and completion of a capstone project. These programs do not follow the traditional university calendar. New groups begin at various times, and classes meet throughout the year without regard to usual university breaks.

The Degree Completion Program offers selected general education courses and electives in an accelerated format for its students. Some of these courses meet Friday evenings or Saturday mornings while many others are available online.

Certain policies of the Degree Completion Program do not coincide with those of the university at large. Where conflicts arise, students in the Degree Completion Program follow the specific regulations established by the Program. General university policy applies in other areas.
