The Pathway

Program Objective

Adult students with 30-45 college credits are able to complete their degree with The Pathway from King University. Students in the program can complete core curriculum and elective coursework while preparing to enter a professional studies degree program at the bachelor’s level. The Pathway classes meet in an online format or one evening per week on campus. Students can complete up to four courses per semester, and no specific courses are required. Students can complete coursework in a schedule that works for them and choose courses that are applicable to their desired degree.
