Earn Your Degree In As Little As 12 Months!

CCSJ's Degree Completion Programs which are part of the School of Adult Learning, are designed to meet the educational needs of adults unable to complete their degree in the traditional manner. Adults with two years of transferable college credit can earn their degree in 12 to 24 months depending on the program. The programs are designed for maximum convenience for the life of the busy adult. All programs feature:  

  • Up to 35% of cost covered by program scholarships

  • Credit awarded for work and life experience

  • Small learning groups of peers who remain together throughout the core program

  • Qualified faculty with experience in their fields

  • Multiple locations in NWI & Chicagoland

Cluster groups of approximately 15 adult learners meet once or twice a week for 4 hours and remain together for the entire program.  A comprehensive curriculum of 14 modules provides students with about 12 to 24 months (depending on program) of concentrated studies.  In addition, each student must draw on coursework, library resources and prior experience to complete an integrative project. 

The School of Adult Learning also provides the following:

  • Comfortable class settings with other adults
