Wingate Adult Bachelor's Degree Program

$420/credit hour, period.

About the Adult Bachelor's Degree Program

If you’d like to start or complete your college career as an adult, our program is designed with you in mind.  Adult learners often attend classes while juggling a full-time job and family responsibilities. On-line classes accommodate your busy schedule.

Most students take two courses per session (including summer) so that they can complete their degree in the shortest time possible. However, this isn’t an accelerated degree program. Your degree is comparable to a traditional four-year program. In addition, you may be able to apply previously earned and eligible college credits toward a Wingate University degree.

If this sounds like you, complete the BLS application to check your eligibility. For details, email
