(VINCENNES) - Grace College has reached two new agreements with state colleges regarding adult learners. Vincennes University and Crossroads Bible College graduates are now eligible to transfer to Grace College to complete a Bachelor of Science degree through Grace's Opportunities for Adult Learners program (GOAL).

Vincennes and Crossroads graduates with an associate degree will receive a $100 per credit hour discount in tuition from Grace.

The GOAL program is designed for adults who desire to complete their bachelor's degree while continuing full-time work and life responsibilities. Students may choose the residential or online Bachelor of Science in Management degree, the online Bachelor of Science in Human Services, or the online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree. Two Indianapolis-area commuter locations host classes: 9302 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, and 835 W. Worthsville Rd., Greenwood. Classes meet one evening per week and two Saturdays each semester, allowing students to complete their degree in 16 months.

Grace College, Vincennes University, and Crossroads Bible College share a common commitment to higher education accessibility and affordability. "Vincennes University is delighted to announce this partnership with Grace College," said VU President Chuck Johnson. "Working together, we will enhance access to higher education and increase affordability for generations of Hoosier students."

"For Crossroads Bible College, this is yet another opportunity to advance our mission to glorify God by training Christian leaders to reach a multiethnic urban world for Christ," noted Crossroads Bible College Vice President Dr. Bob Kellemen. "We're excited to partner with Grace College to provide students this unique opportunity to complete their bachelor's degree."

"We look forward to partnering with these institutions for many years to come," said Grace College President Dr. Bill Katip. "Our philosophies are complementary. We are confident that working together will allow more students to earn bachelor's degrees and, in the process, potentially change their lives in a very positive way."

Vincennes University and Crossroads Bible College join Ivy Tech, Harrison College, and Ancilla College in partnering with Grace College to make bachelor's degrees attainable for more Hoosier students. GOAL program candidates must have at least 60 college credits with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Some credits may be earned from life experience. Students who wish to transfer from any accredited college are welcomed to apply. GOAL cohorts begin each fall and spring at Grace College.
