About Our Students

Claflin University’s degree completion programs are designed for non-traditional students 22 years of age and older. Many of our students are busy working adults who want to be more qualified and competitive in today’s job market. These are individuals who understand that higher education, especially a four-year college degree, gives them professional status and a major step up in earning a higher salary, securing stable employment and having a wider range of career options. A number of our graduates also go on to earn graduate degrees.

Achieving Your Goals

National census studies show that individuals with college degrees, on average, earn double the annual salary of persons without college degrees. For example, a high school graduate can expect to earn, on average, $1.2 million over his or her working life. Those with bachelor’s degrees average $2.1 million in earnings, and people with a master’s degree average $2.5 million over their working lives.

In addition to better employment opportunities and higher wages, most of our adult students aspire to complete their university degrees so that they can have the satisfaction of knowing they have excelled in academic programs offered through Claflin University, one of the country’s premier institutions of higher education.

Program Format

The degree-completion program format is year-round and enables adults who work full-time to earn a bachelor’s degree. Classes meet in five-week modules. The continuing education track affords adult students with no prior college credits or those with fewer than 40 semester hours to take general education courses in preparation for the major coursework. The continuing education format is also year-round and enables students to work towards completing the general education requirements for the major. All students must meet the same rigorous standards as those in Claflin University’s traditional degree programs and, therefore, receive the same quality education.
