Admission Requirements: Adult Degree-Completion Programs
The adult degree-completion programs are designed to serve the educational needs of the non-traditional
learner and working adult age 25 or older. These programs enable adult enrollees to complete course
work for a college degree at times most convenient to them, evenings and on the weekends. All adults
seeking admission must satisfy the College's admission requirements for their desired choice of the two
programs: Organizational Management or Criminal Justice Administration. Each program covers the
subject matter in modular and serial courses.
Any potential student desiring admission into either program must satisfy several admission requirements.
The applicant must:
- be formally admitted to Wiley College.
- be 25 years of age or older.
- have completed the equivalent of two years of prior college work with at least 60
semester hours of transferable college credits from a regionally accredited institution or
have an Associate of Arts degree. A letter grade of "C" or better must be received in
order for the credits to be accepted by Wiley College. Credits for developmental or
remedial courses are not acceptable for transfer, regardless of the grade earned.
Students entering an adult degree-completion program with an Associate of Arts degree
from an accredited program are exempt from taking additional General Education (GE)
courses. Students who have the required 60 hours of transferrable college credit, but
lack some of the required GE courses, will need to take additional GE courses in order
to fulfill the requirements of the program and be eligible for graduation upon
completion of the program.
- have a GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.
- be employed or have had significant work experience (minimum of three years).
- submit official transcripts from previously attended colleges or universities to Wiley College
for evaluation of transfer credit(s).
