Online Degree-Completion Programs

It doesn’t matter where you start; it matters where you finish.

At Greensboro College, we understand the task of juggling everyday life. Work, kids, family, etc., sometimes make it impossible to pursue your goal of completing your bachelor’s degree in a traditional format. Our online degree-completion programs are designed to allow you the flexibility to continue your daily routine as well as complete your degree online. Classes are taught by qualified faculty at a college that has existed since 1838. Greensboro College provides a holistic atmosphere with faculty and students who know one another by name.

Degree-completion programs are designed for those who already have an associate’s degree or are close to completing one. The major courses of these programs are taught online and can be completed in one to two years. Courses are accelerated (eight-week and 10-week formats) so that you are able to complete as little as one course for part-time study or three to four courses for full-time study.

Grievance Procedures

Greensboro College desires to resolve student complaints, concerns, and grievances in an expeditious, fair, and amicable manner, following the written Grievance Procedures in the college catalog.  Students residing outside the state of North Carolina while attending Greensboro College who desire to resolve a complaint or grievance should follow the Grievance Procedures.  However, if an issue cannot be resolved internally, the student may file a complaint with his/her state. The State Higher Education Executive Office site contains a link for the agencies to contact if a student has a complaint:

Greensboro College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. The Commission’s policy for filing complaints is available on its website.


State Authorization for Online Programs

State authorization is a legal issue dealing with a college’s adherence to state requirements for colleges to secure authorization to offer instruction in that state. Compliance with individual state requirements is now part of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, Amended 2010.

HEOA 600.9 (c).
If an institution is offering postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education to students in a State in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, the institution must meet any State requirements for it to be offering postsecondary distance or correspondence education in that State. An institution must be able to document to the Secretary [of Education] the State’s approval upon request. (Authority: 20 U.S.C. 1001 and 1002)
