Degree Completion Program

What is a Completion Degree?

A Completion Degree is a personalized version of a Bachelor’s degree created exclusively for students who have completed an Associate’s degree at an accredited institution. A student who expects to transfer a completed Associate’s degree should communicate with a Wilmington University Academic Advisor before registering for courses. A transcript with documentation of the conferred degree must be received by Wilmington University to confirm eligibility.

CAP/Co-op Option

In order to provide relevant work experience, students in the Media Design degree program have the option of completing six credit hours via a co-op assignment. The co-op option for Media Design is the equivalent of two semester courses, for a total of six credit hours. Students can complete their Media Design degree with 120 credit hours, whether they choose the co-op option or not. Because each co-op experience is individually designed, students must inform the Director of the CAP/Co-op program and the Media Design Program Chair one semester before they would like to begin a co-op assignment.

The co-op option is an alternative to the DSN 318 – Portfolio Production and DSN 490 – Media Design Internship. Each co-op assignment is one semester long and normally the two co-op assignments span two consecutive semesters with the same employer. In order to be eligible, students must first have at least 60 credits, plus a GPA of 2.5 or higher.

For additional information on the CAP/Co-op program option, please see the website: www.wilmu.edu/coop/
