Wilson College is proud to have served our Adult Degree Program (ADP) students for more than 30 years. Originally known as the College for Continuing Education, the program has helped many adult learners succeed. The College began educating nontraditional students in the mid-1970s and officially established the program in 1982. Today, Wilson continues to offer adult men and women who have been out of high school for four years, the opportunity of an education in an adult-friendly atmosphere. ADP students can take courses that lead to earning their associate and bachelor’s degrees, as well as six master’s degree programs. They can also earn a variety of certificates and take noncredit courses just for personal enrichment. Classes are offered both on and off campus and online.
Our Adult Degree Program area features scheduling options to meet the needs of adult students who often have multiple job and family responsibilities. In addition to our traditional fall and spring semesters, we offer two seven-week summer terms and a three-week January Term that allows a student to complete one class. We schedule classes on evenings or weekends. Five majors can be completed exclusively through evening classes: accounting, business management, early childhood education, English and communications. Although Adult Degree Program students can take as much time as they need to complete their associate or bachelor’s degrees, many graduate earlier than they expected, thanks to our flexible options.
We are an adult-friendly college. Our admissions counselors will assist you in choosing and registering for the Wilson program that will help you achieve your career goals. Our academic advisers will work with you to ensure your success. You will become a Wilson College graduate – well-prepared to lead confidently in your career.
