The ACE (Adult Career Education) Bachelor Degree Completion Program is designed to address the needs of working adults, or adults seeking employment, who want to complete college degrees in a customized area of study. Students completing this program will earn a Baccalaureate Degree in Adult Career Education (ACE).

Core coursework focuses on skills that are in high demand by today's employers—skills such as creative problem solving, critical thinking, team building, communication technology, and work-life integration. Beyond the core classes, students work with an advisor to customize a specialization to meet their career and personal goals.

ACE provides a flexible, convenient, and individualized approach to education for adult students who have earned approximately 60 college credits. The on-line core program is delivered in accelerated eight-week courses.

Our advisors will help students identify prior learning experiences that may qualify for college credit, including military training, non-collegiate sponsored training, proficiency exams and work experiences. Resources and support for on-line learning are built into the program because each student's success from day one is paramount.
