The Degree Completion Program is dedicated to helping adults continue their learning by offering educational programs developed specifically for working professionals. Obtaining a college degree is not only a dream for many adults, but also a necessity in order to succeed and advance in the professional world.
The Concordia University Degree Completion Program gives adults the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, Professional Studies or Gerontology while continuing to work and maintain a family and social life. Certificates are available in Gerontology. DCP students are eligible to receive all minors listed in the undergraduate catalog.
Course locations and formats
These classes meet on-site one night a week or online. Most classes are currently 8 weeks in length. Face-to-face classes meet in Lincoln, Neb., and Columbus, Neb. Class time is from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The program can also be completed by taking a combination of courses online and in a face-to-face setting. This hybrid allows working adults to obtain a bachelor’s degree no matter where they are located or how busy their schedules are. The same courses offered at our on-site locations are offered online and in most cases taught by the same faculty. These online classes are combined with significant in-person educational experiences.
