Adult Degree Completion
CBC’s Adult Degree Completion program is an accelerated, collaborative learning environment in which one can earn college credits in a shorter amount of time than a normal semester-based program. The program is fast paced and requires considerable amount of reading, writing, and diligence each week away from the classroom. Each course is taught in a 5-week module. There is limited examination. Instructors normally use projects to measure learning, spiritual growth, and skill development.
Students can enter a cohort through rolling admission. The cohort experience is a place for learning, team building, and spiritual formation. Professors act as a facilitator and encourage shared learning experiences. The student brings his/her experiences to the classroom, as well.
CBC will transfer up to 90 credit hours from an accredited college/university “C-“ or higher. Transferred credits meeting required courses can be accepted, but the student is still required to complete at least 30 residential hours which equals 1 year of active attendance.

Credit by Demonstrated Competency
A foundational and comprehensive study of Life Learning which recognizes the rich and diversified experiential learning for adult degree completion degrees. Emphasis is on the learning that students have experienced and earned through life vocations. Participation in this course allows the student to reflect on their life learning. Through the Credit by Demonstrated Competency (CDC) credit evaluation, the student will document selected topics, experiences, and skills earned. CDC application is submitted for evaluation for college credit at the Bachelor’s level. Learning is documented by the student. Students submit the necessary documentation work for the credit being earned in the Learning Management System. Professional ministry and other non-skilled learning experiences may require writing reflections and substantive evidence for credit to be received. See Program Director(s) and Academic Advisor(s) for details.
