Thank you for your interest in Hannibal-LaGrange University's ADVANCE Program.

Adult learners will be eligible to start this degree completion program with approximately 60 hours. The ADVANCE Program's 18-month core classes total 48 hours. The Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Applied Science degrees require a total of 124 hours. Additional hours may be earned through CLEP testing, portfolio/credit for life experience or additional college courses. A no cost degree completion plan is developed for each Adult learner.
