The Bridge Program helps busy adults who have earned fewer than the 64 credits required to enter Geneva College’s Adult Degree Programs or need additional credits to complete their degree requirements. Through the Bridge Program, you can continue your education in classroom courses, fully online courses and hybrid online courses.
Upon earning 64 credits, students can enter Geneva College’s accelerated Bachelor’s degree programs such as B.S. in Organizational Leadership, B.S. in Organizational Development, B.S. in Human Resources, B.S. in Human Services or B.S. in Christian Ministry Leadership.
Students who have completed the 17-month Adult Degree Program can enroll in Bridge Program courses to complete degree requirements for graduation.
Bridge courses meet in a comfortable, small group classroom setting, as hybrid online or fully online. Classroom courses meet 6 to 10 p.m. one evening a week, generally for six to eight weeks. We mail textbooks and materials directly to you before class begins or you can purchase textbooks online. You can earn up to 18 credits in the fall and spring terms and up to nine credits during the summer term. You can easily register online.
