Nontraditional students have nontraditional costs. Your donation will help ADCP students pay for things like prior learning portfolio credits and CLEP exams as well as tuition and fees. 

About our Project

The Adult Degree Completion Program serves adults over the age of 25 who work full time and have at least 30 college credits. Students can receive course credit for their professional experience, military training, and volunteer work through a portfolio process. Students in this program receive individualized attention including assistance with advising, navigating financial aid, and meeting graduation requirements. Eight-week, fully online course options have made the ADCP an effective way for working adults to complete their bachelor’s degree while saving time and money.   

Since ADCP students are working adults, often with families to support, managing the cost of college can be difficult. Portfolio credits cost $120. CLEP exams cost close to $100. Books can easily top $100 for just one course. These costs can become insurmountable when also faced with housing costs, kid’s school supplies, and grocery bills. Many adult students fall through the cracks for scholarships. They are either too old, have too many credits, or their GPA from their first attempt at college is not high enough. This ADCP Scholarship Fund will directly assist our adult learners by relieving the financial burden of college.

With a donation to the ADCP Scholarship Fund, you are helping working adults achieve their dreams of obtaining a college degree to better themselves and better our community. Funds will be used for ADCP students paying for portfolio credits, CLEP/DSST exams, tuition, fees, and books.
