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 Program Option

The co-op option is an alternative to the VMG 487 - Video Motion Graphics Senior Project and VMG 490 - Video Motion Graphics 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. Students must inform the Director of the CAP/Co-op program and the VMG Program Chair one semester before they would like to begin a co-op assignment.

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