Coker College, soon to be Coker University, has partnered with Richmond Community College (RCC) in Hamlet, N.C., to offer 100% online bachelor’s degree programs in business management, criminology, and psychology for RCC graduates.
RCC graduates who earn their associate degree in business administration, criminal justice, or human services can transfer those credits directly into Coker’s 100% online business management, criminology, or psychology program, giving students two years of completed course requirements toward their bachelor’s degree. These flexible, online programs operate on an accelerated schedule, allowing students to finish their bachelor’s degree in just two years. Coker will award a $2,000-per year RCC Online Advantage Scholarship (for up to three years) to RCC graduates (present and past) of the A.A.S. Degrees in Business Administration, Criminal Justice, and Psychology who pursue the 100% online bachelor’s program.
“Coker is excited to partner with Richmond Community College to give RCC students the opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree in as little as two years,” says Elaine Hodges, director of transfer and online admissions at Coker. “Online degree programs are a great option for students desiring flexibility and convenience, especially if they are juggling responsibilities such as families and jobs. We’re also hoping to see some RCC graduates working towards their bachelor’s degree in one of our 40 subject areas by attending classes on Coker’s campus.”
Coker’s online degree programs begin in August and January. RCC graduates interested in joining the online bridge program can complete an application online. May 2019 RCC graduates will be eligible for the first cohort beginning in August and are encouraged to apply immediately.
