Adult Studies - Structured for Your Success

Our unique Adult Studies bachelor degree-completion program is designed to meet you right where you are at in your pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.


Our flexible degree-completion program offers multiple entry points:

60 – 72 units

For students who have already completed 60-72 units, Simpson offers five-week courses at $150 per course (financial aid is available), with the options of face-to-face or online formats.

72 – 84 units

12 Month ASPIRE Programs: Simpson University’s distinctive ASPIRE program offers two formats to complete your degree. If you have 72-84 units, you can start the 12-month program which offers degrees in Business Management and Organizational Leadership (each with a number of emphases from which you can choose).

16 Month ASPIRE Programs include Psychology and Liberal Studies, as well as our online programs: Psychology (Online) and Organizational Leadership (Online).

If you begin the ASPIRE program with less than 84 outside units you will be able to work with our advisors to come up with a specialized plan to reach the 84 outside units needed to graduate, either while in the program or after your ASPIRE coursework is complete.
