What is a Degree Completion Program?
A Degree Completion Program at Brescia University offers a student who has some college already the opportunity to complete their degree with the convenience and flexibility offered through Brescia University online. These programs are designed for students who wish to complete a major online, and who have already earned between 45 and 86 credit hours that will transfer to Brescia University.
Note: Transfer hours refers to credit hours from another school that are accepted by Brescia University and required for the major.
The following breakdown is intended to help guide you based on the number of transferrable college hours that you have earned at this point:
For students who have 45 – 86 transferrable credit hours:
If you have already completed 45 – 86 credit hours that will transfer to Brescia University, then you are ready to apply for the degree completion program. You may begin taking your major subjects along with other GER courses toward the 128 credit hours required for your degree. To graduate, students must earn at least 42 total credit hours from Brescia and their final 30 credit hours must come from Brescia University. The maximum number of credits that are awarded from Brescia University in the degree completion program is 64 credit hours.
For students who have no college or less than 45 transferrable credit hours:
Although the degree completion program is available for those students with 45-86 transferrable credit hours, Brescia also offers convenient solutions to prepare students for entry into the program through Associate-level online study. Whether you have no previous college experience or would like to transfer less than 45 credit hours, you may complete an Associate’s degree online through BU Online in Business, Liberal Arts, or Human Services. These online Associate degrees build a foundation that is not only convenient and at your pace, but also transfer toward any of our online Bachelor’s degree programs as well.
