How Does It Work?

Fulfill the lower division requirements for your bachelor’s degree with community college courses. Wherever you are in your academic career, SNC’s on-campus advisors can help you make the most of your previously earned credits. Map the most direct route to your bachelor’s degree.

Transfer into SNC’s extension program for your upper division classes once you have qualified for your AA degree. Courses are taught by SNC faculty at your local campus or online. Schedules are convenient and flexible, with classes offered year-round. Class sizes are small. Our professors use hands-on learning to teach from practical experience. The degrees we offer in the extension program are chosen for their immediate relevance in the job market.

Get college credit for professional experience. Coming back to school after a break can be a challenge – we’re here to help. SNC’s 100% online Prior Learning Assessment program helps adult learners get college credit for many kinds of work experience, professional training, military service, and community service. Get up to 15 upper division elective credits towards graduation for one flat fee.

Graduate with a bachelor’s degree from an established, regionally accredited, non-profit college. You can complete your degree requirements in as little as two years on a full-time schedule. Get your degree prepared for a successful career, from a college known for its entrepreneurial spirit and student success.
