Degree Completion Agreements are designed to create a smooth and seamless process by which eligible community college students will be able to complete a baccalaureate degree in our Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) program at Dominican University. Dominican will accept an associate degree earned at the community college level for up to sixty-eight hours of transfer credit. Among these hours, a student may transfer in no more than fifty percent of the chosen major at Dominican. 

Students are encouraged to apply during their attendance at a participating community college; it is recommended that students intending to earn an associate degree apply for admission to Dominican at least one semester prior to graduating from a community college.
