Bachelor's and graduate degrees are issued from the individual college or university providing the degree program, and will be identical to that same degree offered on the institution's campus.
Holden University Center Partnership Program classes are taught by faculty assigned by the partnering university.
The partnership program offers bachelor's completion programs and, in most cases, only upper division (junior and senior) level undergraduate courses. Admission requirements vary from institution to institution, but generally include approximately 60 hours of undergraduate coursework and/or the equivalent of an associate degree. Lakeland Community College can provide lower division coursework through its associate degree program. Contact the Lakeland Community College Counseling Office to inquire about lower level courses.
Each partner university determines its own tuition and fees. Payment is made to the university to which you have registered. Deadlines and refunds also vary according to each university's policy.
