Degree Completion Pathways
Why DEGREE COMPLETION at ESU is the Right Choice for You!
East Stroudsburg University’s Degree Completion pathways provide you with a fast-track to earning your degree in some of the nation's fastest growing fields, offering eight and nine week courses year-round at times that accommodate the demands of a busy work and family schedule. ESU offers Degree Completion pathways at it's main campus as well as it's Lehigh Valley Center and at Northampton Community College. With our unique cohort system of learning, you become a member of a small, focused group of learners who will journey together as a team, with our amazing faculty, on-site staff, and each other to provide you with a system of support every step of the way.
Many continuing and returning adult students can take only part-time coursework. Our pathways are structured in accelerated sessions, allowing you to be a full-time student while still taking only two courses at once. You will move through the sequence at a measured, manageable pace and still be able to complete your degree in two years or less.
Although some of our courses are offered online, we believe in the value of face-to-face education for adult learners in a supportive peer environment. Classes are offered on weekday evenings and during the day on Saturdays to allow for maximum flexibility. Class schedules remain consistent throughout, allowing you to plan ahead so you can complete your degree on time!
And as a member of Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education, ESU's tuition is among the most competitive in the area.
