St. Cloud State University announced on Jan. 10 the launch of three online undergraduate degree programs in business, engineering, and nursing. The affordable, high-quality degree programs, delivered by SCSU faculty and which are supported by Academic Partnerships, are designed to meet the needs and schedules of working adults.
St. Cloud State University is now accepting applications for the following accelerated online degree programs, scheduled to commence this March:
- Bachelor of Science in General Business
- Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering
- Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BS)
Each of these programs addresses the pressing workforce demands, especially within Minnesota’s medical communities, where there is a growing need for highly skilled nurses to support the region’s healthcare systems.
Dr. Robbyn Wacker, President of SCSU, emphasized the significance of these online accelerated programs in extending accessibility to our degrees in Business, Software Engineering, and Nursing for individuals in Minnesota and the Midwest.
“With flexible start dates, affordable tuition rates, and personalized student support, these programs empower adults to complete their degrees, advance their careers, and achieve their educational goals, regardless of their physical location or the demands of their work and family commitments,” she said.
Helping to support SCSU in making these programs more accessible is Academic Partnerships, a leading online facilitator. AP partners with primarily regional universities to help expand access to high-quality, affordable, and workforce-relevant education.
“AP is pleased to continue our partnership with SCSU to expand their online undergraduate programs,” said Fernando Bleichmar, CEO of Academic Partnerships. “We share a deep commitment to increasing access to affordable, high-quality degrees in fields like nursing, teaching, business, and technology.”
The first cycle of classes begins March 10, 2024, with an application deadline of February 26, 2024. For more information or to apply for these programs, please visit https://degree.stcloudstate.edu.
