College Start: On-Campus

Degree Level: Undergraduate Bachelors | Course Format: On Campus

Developed for busy professionals who have little or no previous college
credit, Bethel’s College Start program prepares students to return and
adapt to an academic environment. Students can take one class at a time,
and each course lasts five weeks. Coursework is practical and relevant,
and students can earn college credit for experience outside the classroom.
Students learn with other professionals in a classroom setting one night per
week. New groups typically form each month.
