Adult Degree Completion Program

Reach Higher - Adult Degree CompletionIf you once attended college, but didn’t complete your degree, Rogers State University has a new program just for you. The new Adult Degree Completion Program is for past students who earned at least 72 college credit hours.

At RSU, we understand that you have a full-time job and a family to support. We can work around that. The new program is offered in convenient eight-week “mini-semesters” throughout the year at our campuses in Claremore and Bartlesville. Many classes are offered online. You can start at any time. And you can earn a bachelor degree in as little as 18 months.

This is not an “earn your degree quickly scheme.” This is a highly-regarded academic program at an accredited, well-respected institution. 

At the end, you will earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Organizational Leadership, a versatile degree that is in-demand by top employers.

The program is offered in a flexible, accelerated format to assist more adults in northeast Oklahoma to earn a four-year degree.

Students will be allowed to enroll in the program at four times throughout the year. They will be placed into classes with their peers, allowing them the opportunity to study together and share their experiences. Most assignments may be completed online, providing a maximum level of flexibility.

The new degree is part of the Oklahoma Adult Degree Completion Program, a statewide initiative to increase the number of state residents who have earned bachelor degrees, spearheaded by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. The program is offered by several Oklahoma regional universities, including RSU.

Program curriculum consists of classes that cover topics and skills important in today’s workforce, including organizational behavior, ethics, interpersonal skills, management, finance and communication, and also includes group projects and a senior capstone course. The curriculum was developed by faculty throughout the state with feedback from business and industry leaders in Oklahoma and assistance from the Council on Adult and Experiential Learning.

The broad-based degree will prepare students for a wide variety of careers including education, government and corporate and non-profit environments.
