Many of us live with a sense of unfinished business. We started college, but did not complete our bachelor’s degree we intended to, or we weren’t able to get the classes we needed to graduate in a reasonable amount of time. More and more, adults are returning to college to fulfill their desire.
In fact, the number of adults attending college is greater than the number of traditional college students.
WJU School of Professional Studies can help you develop the tools needed to succeed! In the SPS you will earn a degree that has high academic standards interlaced with Biblical principles and you will share experiences with others in your cohort that time and again we hear are “life-changing” and “immensely rewarding.”
