Degree Completion Pathways Program Offerings

Degree Completion Pathways

To ensure a smooth transition to your bachelor’s degree completion pathway program, please schedule an initial appointment with your academic advisor. Remember, these are alternative pathways, using evening classes at the Springfield campus or online classes, or combinations of the two modalities. Alternative pathways allow you to obtain a degree in the evening or online, as opposed to completely during the day. Classes offered through alternative pathways are exactly the same subject matter and require the same level of academic rigor as do the day classes. For more information, call (417) 836-6929 and make an appointment to meet with one of our Adult Student Advisors.

Projected Course Offerings

After you have chosen the bachelor’s degree pathway you wish to complete, you may find the projected rotation of course offerings, going out two years into the future. At the Missouri State homepage, in the search box, type “Projected Course Offerings”. When the Search Results come up, use the link just below the Catalog, Undergraduate link. That tool will help you plan toward several semesters.
