Finish What You Started

“Some college, no degree.” You’re not alone: This educational status is more common than you think. 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, people who hold a bachelor’s degree can earn up to 30 percent more than their counterparts who have attended some college but did not graduate. 

Whether you’re looking for personal fulfillment or to increase your earning potential, the Adult Degree Completion program at Dominican might be right for you. You can even complete your degree while you work. 

Advance Your Career

Dominican’s professional and continuing education and executive education programs were designed to help you grow and thrive in your existing career. 

In some professions, such as teaching, continuing education credits help you move up the ladder or pay scale, as well as to keep up with certification requirements. 

Short-term professional development programs can boost your leadership skills, increase your network, and expand your opportunities.
