Overview of the LOM Degree Completion Program
We know the traditional college format doesn’t always accommodate the educational needs or lifestyles of working adults. Our degree completion program for adult learners provides the flexibility needed to fit the lives of people with who are busy with professional, family, and other commitments. Our program features:
- Faculty who gives you individual attention
- Program staff who connect all the dots for you so you can focus on your studies
- Offers academic credit for your life experiences and skills
- Course content focused on practical application to nursing
- Classes held one night or morning each week for about 18 months.
At EMU adult learners enroll as a “cohort” and participate in the series of courses as a group. Success is shared and you earn your degree alongside classmates who have been there with you all along.
Learning with other motivated adults allows for a mature, interactive learning style. Course topics are accelerated, and principles of honesty, fairness and ethics shape classroom discussions.
Cross-Cultural Study in Another Culture
EMU’s cross-cultural requirement of study in another culture increases cross-cultural understanding and global awareness of students. Adult degree completion students participate in a local, off-campus cross-cultural experience.

The papers and documentation collected in the portfolio alongside your resume, transcripts, diplomas and any achievement certificates demonstrate accomplishments and shows how learning in your personal and professional life transfers to the academic arena.
