Jackson Adult Degree Completion Program

Adult Degree Programs Overview
for our Associate, Bachelor and Master Degree Programs

Belhaven University has long recognized the needs of the adult learner.  With numerous responsibilities, the adult student is unable, in many cases, to take advantage of higher education.

Belhaven's Adult Education programs are dedicated to making the goal of obtaining a college degree a reality to adult students within a Christian framework.  Through adult-friendly formats and convenient scheduling, adults can obtain their college education while still earning a living.

Adult friendly, Accelerated Degree Format

Belhaven University offers two convenient ways for busy working adults to earn a degree while enjoying faculty and student interactions. Both options allow for direct connections with faculty and students, hearing lectures personally and engaging in discussions with classmates in classes that meet one night a week.

Option one allows students to attend in-person classes on campus.

Option two is an Interactive Live Stream format which allows students to attend a live engaging classroom-style experience via Zoom (check for availability of classes).

Talk to your admission counselor about which online learning format might be best for you by calling 800-960-5940 or e-mail jackson@belhaven.edu.
