Complete your Degree with Jessup’s Adult Degree Completion

Many of us live with a sense of unfinished business. If you started college, but weren’t able to complete your coursework and earn your degree, you may have a desire to someday return to school. You may have thought about it for years now; what are you waiting for? If you’re finally ready to take that first big step, consider the Adult Degree Completion at William Jessup University. With Jessup, you can pick up right where you left off, however long ago. Read on to discover how you can finish what you started with Adult Degree Completion at Jessup.

Adult Degree Completion (ADC) is designed with the mature learner in mind. In order to accommodate busy students, many of whom juggle existing jobs as well as family and childcare responsibilities, all programs consist of just one course at a time, meeting one night per week. Some ADC courses can even be completed online. ADC courses are offered at both of Jessup’s Northern California campuses: Rocklin, in the greater Sacramento area, and San Jose, in California’s Bay Area.

With Adult Degree Completion, students may transfer up to a total of 30 units to their Bachelor’s degree requirement through the Credit for Prior Learning. Because Jessup understands that college level learning can occur outside the walls of a college, the Credit for Prior Learning may also include experiences you have had, and non-college training you have completed. Jessup gives transfer credit for courses that meet a variety of standards from the CSU system, regionally accredited colleges, and accredited community colleges.

Criteria for the ADC program includes:

  • Two years or more of full-time work experience and/or be a recommended minimum of 22 years of age.
  • Cumulative 2.00 GPA (on 4.0 scale) on all prior coursework (applicants with lower GPA will be considered on a case-by-case basis).
  • Proof of high school completion and any applicable transcripts.
  • Official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended (If applicable).
  • Official transcripts must arrive in an envelope sealed by the registrar of the previous institution.
  • Official E-transcripts will also be accepted.

Jessup’s Adult Degree Completion offers several Bachelor degree programs, including Business Administration, Christian Leadership (Rocklin only), Organizational Leadership (Rocklin only), Psychology, and an Addiction Studies certificate (San Jose only). Jessup’s Adult Degree Completion programs are carefully designed to help students develop the tools needed to succeed. In partnership with a caring and experienced faculty, students earn degrees based upon high academic standards and biblical principles.
