Adult Learner Degree Completion and Certificate Programs

Adult students have a variety of priorities and SJU strives to serve the needs of adults who are working toward completing a Bachelor's degree or completing their degree with a post-baccalaureate certificate by offering convenient, cost-effective, and flexible education options to fit your busy lifestyle.

Our students are over the age of 22, taking classes part-time or full-time, in the evening, and take advantage of our on-campus and online class offerings. For select majors and programs, the availability to take classes during the day may be required. Contact us at for a conversation about transferring your credits to complete your degree, or to learn more about our post-baccalaureate certificates.
