Degree Completion

Designed to support the non-traditional student who aspires to complete a Bachelor's degree.

Summer 2014 

Many fully online courses available!

Each year MCLA's Summer College offers some of the best courses that the campus has to offer. Get ahead of your year-round college program or take a course you haven't been able to fit in. For example, you can obtain the equivalent of two years of Spanish in just two six-week summer sessions through our foreign language institute. And educators can accomplish significant progress toward their Master's degrees by taking week-long intensive day courses and achieving 3-4 credits.

This year, MCLA has expanded the quantity of  online courses to support students who work and have family commitments.
