“Rather than doing a traditional orientation for HLGU's new hybrid (online/in-seat) Child Development program we have posted an ‘introduction video' on our website” stated HLGU ADVANCE Program Director, Marc Hurt.

Prospective students are encouraged to have all transcripts sent to the HLGU ADVANCE Program prior to the orientations. “This allows us to do an evaluation of what the student will need and assists the adult learner to know what to expect before getting to the orientation,” stated Darcia Miller, HLGU ADVANCE Program Associate Director. Adult learners will also be encouraged to find out that they may qualify for credit for "prior life experience". In addition to actual college class credits, ADVANCE students can also earn credit hours for CLEP, non-collegiate instruction, military training, seminars, and/or portfolio development

HLGU’s ADVANCE Program classes meet one night per week, one class at a time over a five week period. Students stay with the same group of adult learners (cohort) throughout the remainder of the degree program.  “With an associate’s degree (AS, AA, or AAS) or its equivalent, from an accredited institution, students may be able to complete a bachelor's degree in as little as 18 months,” stated Hurt.

Hannibal-LaGrange University’s ADVANCE Program has been viewed as an innovative and exceptionally effective approach to education by professional educators and employers. Tested principles of adult learning theory are incorporated to make all classes stimulating, relevant, challenging, and rewarding. To make arrangements to attend an evening information meeting or schedule an individual conference, please contact Marc Hurt at (573) 629-3189 or via email at mhurt@hlg.edu.
