Adult Degree Program
Welch College has designed the Adult Degree Program (ADP) to extend its mission “to educate leaders to serve Christ, His Church, and His world through Biblical thought and life” to nontraditional students. The ADP offers regular classes at nontraditional times (nights and weekends). These are taught in a format that is more conducive to and suitable for adult learners. Although ADP courses may run as long as an entire semester, they ordinarily run for a period of six weeks.
The ADP meets the needs of three groups:
- Those who have started, but who have not completed a college degree.
- Those who have never begun work on a college degree.
- Those who want to take college courses for personal enrichment or professional development.
Some courses involve 10-week sessions. Usually these courses require more detailed work (e.g., accounting, etc.) or are courses exceeding three credit-hours. ADP students may also take online courses as part of their programs.
