Hannibal-LaGrange University has announced the tuition for fall 2017 ADVANCE Program cohorts has been lowered by 29 percent.

“This proactive measure will help adult learners earn their bachelor degree,” said Kayla McBride, director of the HLGU ADVANCE Adult Degree Completion Program. “This innovative program has been offered at the Hannibal campus for over 22 years, the Sikeston and Poplar Bluff for over 14 years and as of this fall, our Jefferson City location will be up and running as well. What makes our program so attractive is the fact students can complete their degree requirements in as little as 20 months.”

The HLGU ADVANCE Program allows working adults to attend class one night a week and one subject at a time over a five-week period. With an associate’s degree or its equivalent, applicants have the opportunity to complete their degree requirements in as little as 20 months. Students stay with the same group of adult learners, their cohort, throughout their degree program.

Depending on the type and number of hours the student has already completed at an accredited institution, he or she can earn their Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Applied Science degree. HLGU’s ADVANCE Program offers four degree completion programs, business management, criminal justice, Christian ministry (Jefferson City only) and social services (Bachelor of Science only).
