The flexible, affordable program also offers credits for military and work experience.
The University of Evansville’s Center for Adult Education has developed a new undergraduate degree program for adults. The university studies degree programprovides flexible options for working professionals desiring to advance their careers through earning a degree. Students will chart a degree path to help them meet their personal and professional goals.
The Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degrees in university studies will offer two distinct pathways for degree completion:
- Pathway 1: Adult students who have already earned an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree or its equivalent (60 hours)
- Pathway 2: Adult students who have little or no previous college credit.
Students will work with an advisor to create a personalized path to meet degree requirements and personal goals.
The flexibility of the newly designed program is matched with a reduced tuition rate.
“With a discounted tuition rate of only $315 per credit hour, a bachelor’s degree is within reach,” said Lindsay Roberts, director of the Center for Adult Education at UE. “Additionally, courses will be offered both in-seat and online to meet the needs of working adults.”
The program allows adults who have been out of high school for five years or more to capitalize on prior college course work, prior learning, and military and work experience.
“As part of our mission at UE, we are committed to providing opportunities for lifelong learning,” said Michael Austin, executive vice president for academic affairs at UE. “This new program can play a vital role in opening the door to those opportunities and the educational goals of our community.”
