Visible Music College’s Degree Completion program is designed to allow adult students with some previous college work to apply their transfer credits and life experience in a relevant field to complete their Bachelor’s degrees. The Degree Completion programs offer a flexible path to completing a Bachelor’s degree at a pace that can be tailored to the needs of the student.
In order to qualify for the Degree Completion Program, students must:
1. Be age 25 or older
2. Have 5+ years of post-high school work in a field related to their chosen degree program
3. Have earned at least 60 previous college credits
On top of any federal aid, students will pay $20,000 flat-rate tuition (includes transfer credits, Prior Learning Evaluation, and up to 30 credits). Any credits beyond the first 30 would be discounted to 50% off of the normal rate of $675/credit hour.
More information on the degree completion program going into the master’s program is available here.
Students will receive a specialized degree completion plan based on their transfer credits and Prior Learning Credits awarded. Options are available for full and part-time study, with online and synchronous (live-streamed) classrooms, so students can have a classroom experience without needing to relocate to a Visible campus.
Degree Completion students are encouraged to apply for Prior Learning Credits to gain college credits for the learning they received in their years of work in a relevant field. Students can apply for a maximum of 45 credits hours of Prior Learning Credit. Application for Prior Learning Credits will involve students’ detailed explanation of the learning that took place and how it relates to a specific course in Visible’s catalog. These Prior Learning Assessments are generally 13-15 pages for each 3 credit hour course, including a professional resume/portfolio, explanation of learning, and documentation of learning.
